989. Alice Medvedev and Ramin Takloo-Bighash
Multiplicative groups of fields and hereditarily irreducible polynomials

Submission date: 13 January 2016.


In this paper we explore the concept of good heredity for fields from a group theoretic perspective. Extending results from [9], we show that several natural families of fields are of good heredity, and some others are not. We also construct several examples to show that various wishful thinking expectations are not true.
