  journal={arXiv: Number Theory},
We prove several results concerning genus numbers of quintic fields: we compute the proportion of quintic fields with genus number one; we prove that a positive proportion of quintic fields have arbitrarily large genus number; and we compute the average genus number of quintic fields. All of these results also hold when restricted to $S_5$-quintic fields only. 


Statistics of genus numbers of cubic fields
We prove that approximately $96.23\%$ of cubic fields, ordered by discriminant, have genus number one, and we compute the exact proportion of cubic fields with a given genus number. We also compute
The density of discriminants of quartic rings and fields
We determine, asymptotically, the number of quintic fields having bounded discriminant. Specifically, we prove that the asymptotic number of quintic fields having absolute discriminant at most X is a

Abstract We show how the Selberg $\Lambda ^2$ -sieve can be used to obtain power saving error terms in a wide class of counting problems which are tackled using the geometry of numbers. Specifically,
On ℓ-torsion in class groups of number fields
For each integer $\ell \geq 1$, we prove an unconditional upper bound on the size of the $\ell$-torsion subgroup of the class group, which holds for all but a zero-density set of field extensions of
