Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The goal of this paper is to prove that a random polynomial with independent and identically distributed random coefficients taking values uniformly in {1;::: ; 210} is irreducible with probability tending to 1 as the degree tends to infinity. Moreover, we prove that the Galois group of the random polynomial contains the alternating group, again with probability tending to 1.
