Solving the sextic by iteration: a study in complex geometry and dynamics

Scott Crass

Abstract

We use the Valentiner action of \A{6} on \funnyC\funnyP$^2$ to develop an iterative algorithm for the solution of the general sextic equation over \funnyC, analogous to Doyle and McMullen's algorithm for the quintic.
