### Need help with paper written in Russian… Yorgov's paper on self-dual codes with automorphisms of odd order

I came across this paper by V.I.Yorgov named "Binary self-dual codes with automorphisms of odd order". (Actually I was first reading another paper by Borello that cited this paper. It later become ...

### Geometric intuition for the condition of Galois descent

Continuing in my attempts to understand bits and pieces of Borceux and Janelidze's Galois Theories, I've just realized that I don't have any geometric intuition for the most convenient ...

### What's the connection between Galois objects and Galois closed objects?

An object in a free coproduct completion is Galois closed if it has no nontrivial coverings, i.e every covering morphism is split by the identity. An object of a Galois category is a Galois object if ...

### Galois categories and the connected components functor

In stacks 0BMQ, a Galois category is defined to be a functor $F:\mathsf C\longrightarrow \mathsf{FinSet}$ such that $\mathsf C$ is finitely bicomplete, every object ...

### Inverse Galois Problem ; Galois group of some branched cover of $P^{1}$ defined over $\mathbb{Q}$

I was trying to read a paper on Inverse Galois problem . I understands what the inverse Galois problem is. It asks if every finite group is the Galois group of some extension of the rationals. The ...

### Applications of the Galois embedding problem

Given a finite Galois extension of number fields $L/K$ with Galois group $G$ and a surjection $E\twoheadrightarrow G$ of finite groups, the Galois embedding problem is the question of whether there ...

### Exceptional specializations of Galois groups in the Hilbert Irreducibility Theorem

Suppose $f(x,t)\in\mathbb{Q}(t)[x]$ is an irreducible polynomial with Galois group G. For any rational number $a$ we may consider the polynomial $f(x,a)\in\mathbb Q[x]$ and its corresponding Galois ...

### Hopf-Galois Structure Maps

A Hopf-Galois extension of commutative rings, as defined by Montgomery here, is a morphism of commutative rings $\phi:A\to B$ with a Hopf-algebra $H$ coacting on $B$ by a ring map $c:B\to B\otimes H$ ...

### Is it always possible to “separate” the eigenvalues of an integer matrix?

Call a square matrix Galois-irreducible if all its eigenvalues are Galois conjugates of each other. Let $M$ be an integer $n\times n$ matrix which is not Galois-irreducible. Is it always ...

### Is Lehmer's polynomial solvable?

The degree 10 polynomial $$\displaystyle x^{10} + x^9 - x^7 - x^6 - x^5 - x^4 - x^3 + x + 1$$ given by D.H. Lehmer in 1933 has the property that its largest real root, $\beta = 1.176280 \cdots$ is ...

### Characterizing regular Galois extensions by the set of their specializations

Let $E$ and $F$ be two regular Galois extensions of $\mathbb{Q}(t)$ with group $G$, and let $E_{t_0}$ resp. $F_{t_0}$ be the residue fields corresponding to specializing $t\mapsto t_0\in \mathbb{Q}$. ...
Let $p$ be a prime. What are the most general examples of a field $K$ such that for any finite extension $L/K$ the degree $[L:K]$ is prime to $p$? Certainly, there are algebraically closed examples ...
Let $f(x) = a_{2n} x^{2n} + a_{2n-1} x^{2n-1} + \cdots + a_0$ be a polynomial with integer coefficients and irreducible over $\mathbb{Q}$. For $n \geq 3$, $f$ is generically unsolvable by radicals. ...
