The similarity between prime numbers and irreducible polynomials has been a dominant theme in the development of number theory and algebraic geometry. There are certain conjectures indicating that the connection goes well beyond analogy. For example, there is a famous conjecture of Buniakowski formulated in 1854 (see Lang [3, p. 323]), independently reformulated by Schinzel, to the effect that any irreducible polynomial f (x) in Z[x] such that the set of values f (Z+) has no common divisor… CONTINUE READING
