Hi,have you a good reference (books) for the study of polynomials with one variable or many variables ? Thanks for your help.

There is Polynomials by E.Barbeau contains all the basics, and has a lot of exercises too.
On a similar spirit is Polynomials by V.V. Prasolov.
I've found the treatment in both these books very nice, with lots of examples/applications and history of the results.
Oh, and in case you are interested in orthogonal polynomials, I believe the standard reference is SzegĂ¶'s book.
J. V. Uspensky, Theory of Equations
It is actually the theory of polynomial equations...
For those with an inclination towards number theory, "Squares" by Rajwade might be interesting.
McKee and Smyth, eds., Number Theory and Polynomials, being the proceedings of a workshop held at Bristol University, 3-7 April 2006.
Langevin and Waldschmidt, eds., Cinquante Ans de Polynomes - Fifty Years of Polynomials, proceedings of a conference held in Paris, 26-27 May 1988,
An idiosyncratic but very interesting book is Schinzel's "Topics on Polynomials" (not 100% sure that's the exact title, book is at my office).
Serge Lang once gave me a nice little booklet with a red cover. The title was something like "Polynomials: A beautiful high school topic". I remember it had some stuff about the abc conjecture. I can't seem to find my copy right now, though. I can't find it online, either.
