Description

Abilities:

The package can compute and display an expression by radicals for the roots of a solvable, rational polynomial. Related to this it is possible to create the Galois group and the splitting field of a rational polynomial.

Requirements:

The package is written for GAP version 4.4. It requires the package Alnuth. Beside this the external programms 'LaTex' and 'xdvi' are needed.

Installation:

The installation follows standard GAP rules. So the normal way to install is to unpack the archive in the `pkg' directory, which will create a subdirectory `radiroot'.
