Algebra Seminar
Counting Polynomials and Number Fields
David Lowry-Duda (ICERM)

Wednesday, March 22, 2023
11:15am – 12:05pm

Storrs Campus
Monteith 313

We will talk about two related problems: counting polynomials with small Galois groups, and counting number fields of a certain degree up to a certain discriminant bound. The former problem is related to Hilbert's irreducibility theorem, and the second is a classical (and very hard) problem. I aim for this to be a largely accessible talk.
