  Algebraic number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, an algebraic number is any number that is a root of an algebraic equation, a non-zero polynomial with integer (or equivalently, rational) coefficients.
In fact, it is the smallest algebraically closed field containing the rationals, and is therefore called the algebraic closure of the rationals.
The name algebraic integer comes from the fact that the only rational numbers which are algebraic integers are the integers, and because the algebraic integers in any number field are in many ways analogous to the integers.

 Algebraic equation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, an algebraic polynomial over a given field is a polynomial with coefficients in that field.
Note that an algebraic equation can always be converted to one in which the coefficients are integers.
If all the other coefficients of this form are integers, the roots of the equation are algebraic integers.

 How do I solve systems of differential and algebraic equations?
A set of equations that includes both differential equations and algebraic equations is called a differential-algebraic equation, or DAE.
Differential-algebraic equations are usually solved either by first solving the algebraic equations and using the solution to construct a set of purely differential equations, or by solving the differential equations and using the solution to construct a set of purely algebraic equations.
If neither the algebraic equations nor the differential equations can be solved symbolically, then it may be useful to consider a purely numerical solution.

He solved his operator equation in the particular cases which arise in the study of the physical problem in his thesis (and in the paper which appeared in 1900 based on that thesis) while the general case was solved by Fredholm somewhat later and not published until 1908.
In 1799 Ruffini published a book on the theory of equations with his claim that quintics could not be solved by radicals as the title shows: General theory of equations in which it is shown that the algebraic solution of the general equation of degree greater than four is impossible.
Although an algebraic equation of the fifth degree cannot be solved in radicals, a result which was proved by Ruffini and Abel, Hermite showed in 1858 that an algebraic equation of the fifth degree could be solved using elliptic functions.

 SparkNotes: Variables: Solving Algebraic Equations
The goal in solving an equation is to get the variable by itself on one side of the equation and a number on the other side of the equation.
Herein lies a vital role of solving algebraic equations: whatever operation is carried out on one side of the equal sign in an equation must be carried out on the other side as well.
To solve an algebraic equation, reverse all the operations on the variable side of the equation by performing their inverse operations on both sides of the equation.

 Solutions to Algebraic Equations
There are three key ideas in an equation: an equation must involve two expressions, the expressions must be equal, and the equation must indicate that the expressions are equal.
An identity is an equation that is true for all values of the unknown involved.

 Visualizing solutions to n-th degree algebraic equations using right-angle geometric paths, based on Lill's Method.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
In forming the right-angle path for a quadratic equation, the directions for the a, b, and c lines are individually absolute in the sense that a negative coefficient would be represented by a line in the opposite direction, without affecting the directions for the other coefficients.
However, the algebraic solution is complicated and is usually not represented by one single equation, but rather by a sequence of equations with intermediary values, some of which are complex numbers.
The resulting algebraic equation will be of order n + 2 and will have the same roots as the original equation of order n, and two additional roots which are: x = +/- i, where i is the square root of - 1, the unit imaginary number.

This view of an equation amounts to reading an equation as an assertion that every choice of numerical values for the variables is a solution for the equation.
The third, seventh and eighth equations are of this form.
For an equation to be a formula in this sense it is necessary that "one side" of the equation (generally the left-side) consist of a single variable that does not occur on the other side of the equation.
