The field of group theory was initiated by Évariste Galois as a consequence of his work on establishing the general solubility criteria of polynomials in radicals.
Group theory was originally called the theory of substitutions until Arthur Cayley's $1854$ paper On the theory of groups in which he introduced the concept of the abstract group.
