Resolvent (Galois theory)

In Galois theory, a discipline within the field of abstract algebra, a resolvent for a permutation group G is a polynomial whose coefficients depend polynomially on the coefficients of a given polynomial p and has speaking, a rational root if and only if the Galois group of p is included in G. More if the Galois group is included in G the resolvent has a rational root, the converse is true if the rational root is a simple root. Resolvents were systematically used by Évariste Galois. Nowadays they are still a fundamental tool to compute Galois groups; the simplest examples of resolvents are X 2 − Δ where Δ is the discriminant, a resolvent for the alternating group. In the case of a cubic equation, this resolvent is sometimes called the quadratic resolvent; the cubic resolvent of a quartic equation, a resolvent for the dihedral group of 8 elements. The Cayley resolvent is a resolvent for the maximal resoluble Galois group in degree five, it is a polynomial of degree 6. These three resolvents have the property of being always separable, which means that, if they have a multiple root the polynomial p is not irreducible.

It is not known. For every equation the roots may be expressed in terms of radicals and of a root of a resolvent for a resoluble group, the Galois group of the equation over the field generated by this root is resoluble. Let n be a positive integer, which will be the degree of the equation that we will consider, an ordered list of indeterminates; this defines the generic polynomial of degree n F = X n + ∑ i = 1 n i E i X n − i = ∏ i = 1 n, where Ei is the ith elementary symmetric polynomial. The symmetric group Sn acts on the Xi by permuting them, this induces an action on the polynomials in the Xi; the stabilizer of a given polynomial under this action is trivial, but some polynomials have a bigger stabilizer. For example, the stabilizer of an elementary symmetric polynomial is the whole group Sn. If the stabilizer is non-trivial, the polynomial is fixed by some non-trivial subgroup G. Finding invariants for a given subgroup G of Sn is easy; however it may occur. For example, consider the case of the subgroup G of S4 of order 4, consisting of, the identity.

The monomial X1X2 gives the invariant 2. It is not a resolvent invariant for G, as being invariant by, in fact, it is a resolvent invariant for the dihedral subgroup ⟨, ⟩, is used to define the resolvent cubic of the quartic equation. If P is a resolvent invariant for a group G of index m its orbit under Sn has order m. Let P1... Pm be the elements of this orbit; the polynomial R G = ∏ i = 1 m is invariant under Sn. Thus, when expanded, its coefficients are polynomials in the Xi that are invariant under the action of the symmetry group and thus may be expressed as polynomials in the elementary symmetric polynomials. In other words, RG is an irreducible polynomial in Y whose coefficients are polynomial in the coefficients of F. Having the resolvent invariant as a root, it is called a resolvent. Consider now an irreducible polynomial f = X n + ∑ i = 1 n a i X n − i = ∏ i = 1 n, with coefficients in a given field K and roots xi in an algebraically closed field extension. Substituting the Xi by the xi and the coefficients of F by those of f in what precedes, we get a polynomial R G called resolvent or specialized resolvent in case of ambiguity).

If the Galois group of f is contained in G, the specialization of the resolvent invariant is invariant by G and is thus a root of R G that belongs to K. Conversely, if R G has a ra

Lovingston, Virginia

Lovingston is a census-designated place in and the county seat of Nelson County, United States. The population as of the 2010 Census was 520, its ZIP Code is 22949. It was among the communities affected by flash flooding from Hurricane Camille in 1969. Lovingston is part of the Charlottesville Metropolitan Statistical Area; the Lovingston High School, Lovingston Historic District, the Nelson County Courthouse are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The town was formed in 1807 and has been the county seat of Nelson County since 1809 when the courthouse was built in the center of town; the original 30-acre parcel of land on which the town sits was given by the Loving family, a influential family over the years of the town's history. The town is dominated by the courthouse in the center of town with a grid pattern of streets surrounding it. Front and Spring streets run in a north-south direction while Main and Pleasant streets run in an east-west direction; the layout of the town was designed by George W. Varnum and the original design is still present today with few alterations.

The courthouse is a significant marker of Lovingston's history as a courthouse town. It was the first public building built after the town's formation in 1807, expansions have enabled it to remain in use to the present. Notable buildings in the square include the Whitehead Law office, the First Clerk's office, the original jail, based on a design from Thomas Jefferson. Along Court Street were several taverns and hotels where people would gather to dine and rest on court days. Court days were a weekly event; the entire square would be filled with court attendees and their families picnicking and socializing. The courthouse was designed by Shelton Crosthwait and is derived from the English town hall plan featuring a two-story temple front with a ground floor arcaded piazza; this design bridges the gap between colonial courthouse design and the Jeffersonian temple form. The hurricane of 1969 was a profound event. Dr. Robert H. Simpson at the National Hurricane Center called Hurricane Camille "the greatest recorded storm to hit a populated area of the Western hemisphere."

Thirty-three inches of measured rain fell in a short period of five hours in town, the day prior five inches in a half-hour and 153 Virginians were killed, three of whom lived in Lovingston, some still missing. Many buildings were destroyed and 70 more were damaged; the town was sited to avoid heavy flooding. Lovingston served as the center of recovery operations after the storm. 185 miles of road were damaged or lost in the flood. The 153 Nelson County residents lost to Hurricane Camille have been commemorated in a number of ways over the years. In the Courthouse Square stands a monument honoring the 153 Nelson County residents who died in the tragedy; the town has been recognized on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places since 2005 with 134 contributing buildings and sites within 225-acre designated historic area. Architectural styles present include Federal, Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Colonial Revival, Dutch Colonial Revival and Modern Movements, as well as commercial and governmental buildings.

After the success of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy, its writer and director Sandeep Vanga wanted to remake it in Hindi with Ranveer Singh. When it did not work out, he approached Shahid Kapoor. However, producers Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of Cine1 Studios, who acquired the remake rights for Hindi, wanted Arjun Kapoor to play the male lead. Disappointed, Vanga said, "I've come to know that the remake rights of Arjun Reddy have been sold and it would star Arjun Kapoor. I am caught in a dilemma, as I've locked Shahid for the role. It's a embarrassing situation for me. I don't know how I'll face Shahid." In April 2018, however, it was announced that Shahid Kapoor would star, with Vanga returning as director. Bhushan and Krishan Kumar of T-Series produced the film, while Vinod Bhanushali received a co-producer credit; the dialogue was written by Siddharth–Garima. Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran was selected as the cinematographer, Aarif Sheikh as editor. Vanga was confident that the remake would be more hard hitting than the original: "When I made Arjun Reddy, I wasn't sure where to draw the line in terms of representation of certain thing


Katemeshi spelled as katé-meshi, was a common peasant food in Japan during the Meiji period and Taishō period. Some laborers and farmers subsisted on the dish during this time, whereas wealthier Japanese people consumed larger quantities of rice, a expensive food compared to the income of some workers. Typical ingredients in the dish included rice, barley and chopped daikon, a mild winter radish. Katemeshi was a rice dish, peasant food and former staple food in Japanese cuisine, common during the Meiji and Taishō periods of Japan. During this time, rice was an expensive food for laborers, some employers fed their workers katemeshi, while feeding themselves with larger quantities of rice and separate side dishes; some farmers in rural Japan subsisted on katemeshi, whereas merchants and samurai who lived in cities consumed larger quantities of rice. Typical ingredients in the preparation of katemeshi included rice, millet, chopped daikon radish root and leaves, other greens; the use of daikon in the dish was common.

Various additional ingredients were used in the dish in regional areas of Japan, based upon food availability. In the Mie prefecture of Japan, potato leaves were used in addition to daikon. In Eastern Japan, white potatoes were used as an ingredient in katemeshi, in Western Japan, sweet potatoes were used. Edible seaweeds such as hijiki and wakame were used as ingredients in coastal areas. Tofu and okara, a leftover pulp by-product from tofu production, were sometimes used in katemeshi. Other ingredients used in the dish in various areas of Japan, when available, included wheat, turnips, taro, soybeans, kidney beans and adzuki beans, among others.

Oscar DeGruy

Oscar DeGruy is an American actor who has appeared in over a dozen films and TV shows over 30 years, started the Baháʼí Youth Workshop performance model in 1974, has assisted hip hop artists. DeGruy was a regular on The New Bill Cosby Show for the 1972–1973 season and appeared in shows as diverse as Room 222 to Hill Street Blues, his first role was on The Young Lawyers in 1970, in 2008 he completed work as a supporting actor in Zero Option, based on a true story. In Good Times in 1974 Degruy was featured in a two-part episode "JJ and the Gang". JJ is forced into a gang led by Mad Dog, who wounds JJ. After the trial Mad Dog is confronted by his mother, who confesses "I never thought I could feel this way about my child, but I hate you" and the two exchange emotional arguments over the missing husband/father. JJ's father, James feels sympathy for Mad Dog witnessing the family argument over the absent father. A former member of the Black Panthers DeGruy changed his approach to racism issues and "had to do something" – so he and his wife brought performing arts theater with performance arts of step dance and street dancing together with the Baháʼí principles of equality, racial harmony and unity of religions.

In 1982 DeGruy was joined by Juliet Soopikian and together they co-wrote the workshops's manual in 1987. In 1995 there were over 100 Workshops in the United States and another 100 scattered across 50 other countries. Over 1000 such Workshops have formed over the years. There are several standard performances that are part of the Workshop's manual – one is the "Racism Dance." Two young members from oppositely styled groups come together in the middle of the "stage" and start to become friendly. They are theatrically dragged back to their "own" groups by the blindfolded adults, who communicate through gestures their mistrust of and hatred for the other group, the central players are given blindfolds to wear of their own. In the dramatic climax, the young ones shed their blindfolds, return to center stage, demonstrate the races can unite. At the end, their example leads everyone to remove their blindfolds and come together in a final joyous dance sequence. In 1995 a select group of six young women formed a workshop to perform at the NGO Forum on Women in China, parallel to the UN Fourth World Conference on Women and performed five times.

They were selected to perform in the closing ceremony, before some 15,000 people two pieces – "a dance on domestic violence showing women as peacemakers, a rap on the nobility and dignity of women and the importance of women and men working in partnership."
