    Abel's Proof

    Anyone know of a website where I can find Abel's original proof that there exists no general solutions to the quintic equation?

    Original Proof ? Do you mean the manuscript ?

    If you know German , you are lucky , see

    (Papers over the algebraic dissolution of the equations , Abel , Niels Henrik )
    Abhandlungen über die algebraische Auflösung der Gleichungen : Abel, Niels Henrik, 1802-1829 : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive ( should be the translation of the manuscript )

    or if you are a Frenchman , why not see his collected works ?

    Vol. 1

    Oeuvres complètes de N.H. Abel, mathématicien, avec des notes et développements : Abel, Niels Henrik, 1802-1829 : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive


    Vol. 2

    Oeuvres complètes de N.H. Abel, mathématicien, avec des notes et développements : Abel, Niels Henrik, 1802-1829 : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

    Actually , they all come from this page

    Internet Archive Search: Niels Henrik Abel

    Hope they are useful
