Thats neat and natural. Thanks quid. I tried to solve it unnecessarily in a complicated way and was stuck.

comment Could a real curve symmetric across the line be defined only by polynomial that is not reflection-invariant?
The title asks for something not reflection-invariant, but the text inside asks for something invariant.

comment Is there a way to find out how many distinct roots a polynomial has?
This question has answers in textbooks on field theory as one of the results. Not ideal for Mathoverflow; better to be in math.stackexchange.

comment What are the necessary conditions for a real number to be a cyclotomic integers?
When we start with an irreducible polynomial over some field and regards its factorization into irreducible in a Galois extension are not the degrees of irreducible factors above equal (this follows from the transitive action of the Galois group on the primes lying above a given prime: Here the dedekind domains are the PIDs given by polynomial rings over the base and extension fields). So I don't fully understand what is special about cyclotomy here.

@Emil: Expanding on your comment integers of all quadratic fields, following Kronecker-Weber (or something simpler like quadratic reciprocity), are cyclotomic integers.

A real number $x$ is an algebraic integer if and only if $-x$ is. So positivity plays no role.

comment Factoring a polynomial in a specific manner
Your definition of $d'$ involves an undefined $l$. Can you look into it.

or rather $(2N+1)^{n+1}$? (I missed zero!)

comment Density of polynomials with a prescribed number field extension
As the coefficients $a_i$ can lie between $-N$ and $N$, should not the definition of density have $(2N)^{n+1}$ in the denominator?

OP wanted abstract mathematics, and plotting is mostly about numerical mathematics and applied mathematics.

comment Primes as uncorrelated random variables
I once saw a heuristic argument that the probability of two numbers being relatively prime is $6/\pi^2$, the computation involving calculating the value of Euler's zeta function value $\zeta(2)$. How does this gel with this?

Can I assume all your polynomials are irreducible?

comment How to handle a polynomial whose roots exhibit obvious symmetry
You say you expect to reduce the polynomial because of cyclic group of order 3. What exactly do you mean by reducing? Your polynomials are not irreducible? And your plot needs info on how to interpret: are the dots hights represent roots (real numbers always?) Multiple dots at same level does that means roots of same modulus?
