Is there any criterion for the irreducibility of a polynomial in several variables over an algebraically closed field (or specifically for the complex numbers)? For one variable, we know this is simply that only degree one polynomials are irreducible, is there anything similar for several variables?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
