As we all know Galois is an ultimate math prodigy. At age 17 or 18 he published a paper which we now know as Galois theory. I want to just see how he thought mathematics by seeing his original paper(of-course translated in english).

Thanks!

I know a few of his papers appear (translated) in a book Hawking edited, God Created the Integers. I'm sure his papers can be obtained elsewhere, probably for free even. The three in the book are

  • On the conditions that an equation be soluble by radicals,
  • On the primitive equations which are soluble by radicals, and
  • On Groups and Equations and Abelian Integrals

The upside to Hawking's book (whose title is part of a quote by Kronecker, by the way) is that you get much more than just Galois's three papers. There are original works of Euclid, Archimedes, Descartes, Riemann, Cantor, Dedekind, and quite a few more (ironically, no Kronecker from what I can see!). The full table of contents can be viewed here.

I can't help but mention that the book is currently shockingly cheap, for 1300+ pages!

A google search for his 1897 collected works, Oeuvres mathematiques d'Évariste Galois, turns up quite a few freely available copies:

copy at Internet Archivev

copy at Christophe Clanet's web pages

copy at google-books

copies at Project Gutenberg

Gallica's copy of some work published in 1846 in Liouville's Journal

Oeuvres mathématiques d'Évariste Galois by Évariste Galois is the PDF article in French about some of his published works.

Have a look at the Editions Jacques Gabay. They are providing reprints of old scientific books. They are in French, but not the formulas.

The best Galois full edition you will ever find is found here: https://uberty.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Peter_M._Neumann_The_Mathematical_Writings.pdf
