An equation of the form $ax^4+bx^3+cx^2+dx+e=0$
Like the Quadratic Equation and the Cubic Equation, the Quartic
Equation has a closed form solution. This was first found by
Ferrari, then stolen and published by Cardano.
In practice, numerical solutions are found rather than using a
closed form formula.
