His maist famous single result is the first complete pruif demonstratin the impossibility o solvin the general quintic equation in radicals. This quaisten wis ane o the ootstaundin open problems o his day, an haed been unresolved for 250 years. He wis an aa an innovator in the field o elliptic functions, discoverer o Abelian functions. Despite his achievements, Abel wis lairgely unrecognised during his lifetime; he made his discoveries while livin in poverty an died at the age o 26.
