Schinzel's Hypothesis H is a general conjecture in number theory on prime values of polynomials that generalizes, e.g., the twin prime conjecture and Dirichlet's theorem on primes in arithmetic progression. We prove a quantitative arithmetic analog of this conjecture for polynomial rings over pseudo algebraically closed fields. This implies results over large finite fields via model theory. A main tool in the proof is an irreducibility theorem à la Hilbert.
