Past Lectures: "Rational Approximations to Irrational Numbers", "The Quadratic Equation and Beyond", " A Collection of Diophantine Problems", "Some Sums"
Abstract: Rational Imaginary Roots of Polynomials, Professor Tony Thomas, UW-Platteville. This will be his FIFTH presentation to our math club. The Rational Root Theorem tells us where to look for rational roots of polynomials. In this talk we will discuss where to look for rational imaginary roots, i.e., imaginary roots whose real and imaginary parts are rational numbers. The only prerequisite for this talk is a background in algebra that includes finding roots of polynomials
Biography: Tony Thomas received his B.A. from Washington University (St. Louis) and his Ph.D. from Purdue University. He has been teaching at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville since 1994
