GRA2 - Groups, representations and applications: new perspectives For each field $K$ of characteristic $0$, we determine all degree-$n$ rational functions $f(X) \in K(X)$ for which the Galois group of the Galois closure of $K(x)/K(f(x))$ is not $A_n$ or $S_n$. For many applications, this means determining all rational functions over $K$ which behave differently from a typical rational function of the same degree. We give applications to value distribution of meromorphic functions, near-injectivity of rational functions over number fields, and bijectivity of rational functions on subgroups of the multiplicative group of a finite field. The proofs rely on various results classifying primitive groups with additional properties, and the topics lead to new types of questions about primitive groups.
