### Are most univariate pyramidal polynomials over $\mathbb{Z}$ or $\mathbb{Z}/p$ reducible or irreducible?

Consider the special family of polynomials of odd degree where the following condition holds : $\forall i$, $a_i > 0$ and $a_d < a_{d-1} < \ldots a_{d/2+1} > a_{d/2} > ... > a_0$ ...

### How “separable” (not in that sense) is a polynomial?

Since "separable" is used for different meaning in separable polynomial and separation of variable, I am having trouble searching for anything related to my question. So I hope someone can help with ...

### Do polynomials make sense over non-commutative rings?

One could think of polynomials rings as sort of a derived ring (a ring of functions $f: \mathbb{N}^m \mapsto R$ such that $f^{-1}(R \setminus \{ 0 \} )$ is finite), but from what I can tell, we are ...

### Are these computational models equivalent?

Let $f : X \to Y$ be a problem that you want to compute. Say we have an $O(1)$-computable maps, $\phi, \psi$, such that $X \xrightarrow{\phi} (\Bbb{Z}_n)^k \xrightarrow{\psi} Y$. After all, ...

### Prove $x^3-3x+4$ is irreducible in $\mathbb{Q}[x]$

I want to prove $x^3-3x+4$ is irreducible in $\mathbb{Q}[x]$. Eisenstein's criterion doesn't apply here, so I think the simplest method would be to use the Rational Roots Test, right? If I can use ...

### Topological closure of ideal in $A[[T]]$ - Proposition 1.3.7 in Liu

In Proposition 1.3.7 of Liu's book, one proves that if a ring $A$ is noetherian then so is $A[[T]]$. We take an ideal $I$ of $A[[T]]$ and prove that there exist $F_1,\ldots,F_m\in I$ such that for all ...
