This well-known work covers the solution of quintics in terms of the rotations of a regular icosahedron around the axes of its symmetry. Its two-part presentation begins with discussions of the theory of the icosahedron itself; regular solids and theory of groups; introductions of (x + iy); a statement and examination of the fundamental problem, with a view of its algebraic character; and general theorems and a survey of the subject. The second part explores the theory of equations of the fifth degree and their historical development; introduces geometrical material; and covers canonical equations of the fifth degree, the problem of A's and Jacobian equations of the sixth degree, and the general equation of the fifth degree. Second revised edition with additional corrections.
