# Is there a standard notation for the Galois group of a polynomial?

Is there any standard notation for the Galois group of a polynomial $$f$$? I've been writing $$\text{Gal}(f)$$ but I've recently realised I probably just made that up. I know that you could denote the splitting field by $$L/K$$ and write $$\text{Gal}(L/K)$$ but I was wondering if there was a notation just in terms of $$f$$, which would be convenient.

• I think $\mathrm{Gal}(f)$ is fine If the smaller field $K$ is absolutely clear from the context^. Particularly if we can infer that $K$ is a prime field. – Jyrki Lahtonen Apr 8 '19 at 13:42
• Yes I agree, I'm referring to the case where the field is clear. – AlephNull Apr 8 '19 at 13:46

$$\operatorname{Gal}(f)$$ is standard.
