SUMMARY 


The Eigenvalue Theorem is a basic result in computational algebraic geometry. It says that solving a zerodimensional system of polynomial equations can be reduced to an eigenvalue problem in linear algebra. The name of Ludwig Stickelberger (18501936) is often attached to this theorem, yet papers that use his name never cite any of his papers. My lecture will explore the reasons for this. The answer involves a lovely trace formula in algebraic number theory and an algebra textbook published by Gunter Scheja and Uwe Storch in 1988.
