Now given that z_1 and z_2 are algebraic, suppose you want to show that (z_1 + z_2) or (z_1 * z_2) are also algebraic. In other words, given polynomials f(x) and g(x) with z_1 and z_2 as (one of their) roots, we want to construct polynomials that have (z_1 + z_2) or (z_1 * z_2) as a root. In this talk we will build such polynomials via an interesting object called the resultant.

P.S.: Little background will be assumed, so if the problem statement is clear then so should be the talk.
