The Cayley-Hamilton Theorem Philip J. Erdelsky June 8, 2006 Reformatted June 7, 2012

Evariste Galois' father Nicholas Gabriel Galois and his mother Adelaide Marie Demante were both intelligent and well educated in philosophy, classical literature and religion. However there is no sign of any mathematical ability in any of Galois' family. His mother served as Galois' sole teacher until he was 12 years old. She taught him Greek, Latin and religion where she imparted her own scepticism to her son. Galois' father was an important man in the community and in 1815 he was elected mayor of Bourg-la-Reine.

Tablature is an old notation system created to write the music composed for the vihuela. This system has been popular until eighteenth century, many pieces are available only in that notation system, it is still used today. In this system, each line of the staff represents a string of the instrument. In Spanish and Italian tablatures, the top string is represented by the bottom line, while in French and English tablatures, the reverse would be the case.
