Given a “random” polynomial over the integers, it is expected that, with high probability, it is irreducible and has a big Galois group over the rationals. Such results have been long known when the degree is bounded and the coefficients are chosen uniformly at random from some interval, but the case of bounded coefficients and unbounded degree remained open. Very recently, Emmanuel Breuillard and Peter Varju settled the case of bounded coefficients conditionally on the Riemann Hypothesis for certain Dedekind zeta functions. In this talk, I will present unconditional progress towards this problem, joint with Lior Bary-Soroker and Gady Kozma.
