Dresden gave a brief report on a method recently developed by W. E. Roth at the University of Wisconsin for determining solutions of the matrix equation $$P(X) = A$$ which are expressible as polynomials in $$A\text{,}$$ where $$P(\lambda)$$ is a polynomial in $$\lambda$$ without a constant term, $$A$$ is a given matrix of order $$n\text{,}$$ and $$X$$ is the unknown matrix of order $$n\text{.}$$ The fact that Dresden based his talk on work done at Wisconsin combined with Fort’s emphasis on contributions made by American mathematicians reflects a heartfelt pride in achievements by their fellow countrymen.
