### On the peculiar Lagrange resolvent of the septic $7x^7+14x^4+7x^3-1=0$

Given an irreducible solvable equation $P(x)=0$ of prime degree $p>2$ with rational coefficients and $\zeta^p=1$, define the usual Lagrange resolvents of the roots $x_i$ as,
$$R_n = ...

### Can group solvability be detected from identities among the generators?

For $n=1$ the answer is "yes." -- A group is abelian iff its generators commute.
Let $G_0=G$ be a group and let it be generated by $X_0=X$. For each $n>0$ let $G_n=[G_{n-1},G_{n-1}]$ and let ...

### Decomposition of solvable Lie group

Suppose $G$ is a connected Lie group whose radical is $R$. It is known that the solvable group $R$ can always be decomposed as $R=UT$ where $U$ is a simply-connected normal subgroup of $R$ and $T$ is ...

### Lattices in SOL

Consider a semi-direct product $\mathbb{Z}^2\rtimes_A\mathbb{Z}$, where $A\in SL_2(\mathbb{Z})$ and $|Tr(A)|>2$. It is clear that it is isomorphic to a lattice in the 3-dimensional solvable Lie ...
