Central Extensions, Updated
I previously mentioned a problem concerning polynomials, whose motivation came from thinking about weight one forms and the inverse Galois problem for finite subgroups of I still like the polynomial problem, but I realized that I was confused about the … Continue reading

Prime divisors of polynomials
A heuristic model from the last post suggests that the “expected” order of the Galois group associated to a weight one modular form of projective type is infinite. And when one tries to solve the inverse Galois problem for central … Continue reading

Inverse Galois Problems II
David Zywina was in town today to talk about a follow up to his previous results mentioned previously on this blog. This time, he talked about his construction of Galois groups which were simple of orthogonal type, in particular, the … Continue reading

Inverse Galois Problem
My favourite group as far as the inverse Galois problem goes is . This is not known to be a Galois group over for any , the difficulty of course being that is must correspond to an even Galois representation. … Continue reading
