ABSTRACT:
A sufficient condition under which an irreducible equation
of prime degree is unsolvable in radicals is obtained. This
condition is that the discriminant of an equation
cannot be expressed as the sum of two squares in the ground field.
For an equation of degree 5 this condition implies that the
Galois group is $\goth S_5$.
