COMMENTS

The first part of Ramanujan's question 699 in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society (VII, 199) asked "Show that the roots of the equations x^6 - x^3 + x^2 + 2*x - 1 = 0, ... can be expressed in terms of radicals."

The polynomial includes a trivial factor, i.e., x^6 - x^3 + x^2 + 2*x - 1 = (x + 1) * (x^5 - x^4 + x^3 - 2*x^2 + 3*x - 1).

FORMULA

Equals 2^(1/4) / G(79), where G(n) is Ramanujan's class invariant G(n) = 2^(-1/4) * q(n)^(-1/24) * Product_{k>=0} (1 + q(n)^(2*k + 1)), with q(n) = exp(-Pi * sqrt(n)).

PROG

(PARI) p(x)=x^5-x^4+x^3-2*x^2+3*x-1; solve(x=0.3, 0.5, p(x))

(PARI) q(x)=exp(-Pi*sqrt(x)); G(n)=2^(-1/4)*q(n)^(-1/24)*prodinf(k=0, (1+q(n)^(2*k+1))); 2^(1/4)/G(79)
