Example of a Galois Group of order 8 ( Introducing Math Doctor Bob )

Regular readers must have noticed my interest in Abstract Algebra, of which I am currently studying, in different ways, the topic of Galois Theory. If you have chosen a different route in mathematics ( computation, statistics, and so forth ) or if you are at the early undergraduate level you may have difficulty picturing what Galois Theory is -all about-. I am trying to communicate that idea by summarizing the popular introduction to the field 'Fearless Symmetry' which basically introduces Galois Theory to the general ( but educated ) public. ( Currently working on part 7 out of 23). But as they say, one picture says more than a thousand words. For those that want to get an idea, fast and easy, and *now*, I recommend the following video ( mini lecture ). Don't expect you can master the subject by watching a ten minute video but the ten minutes are well worth it. The video lecturer is 'Math Doctor Bob', who uploaded about 600 mini lectures on various mathematical topics.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
