[tex]x^{5024}+x^{1004}+1[/tex]

my first thought is that since this polynomial doesn't have real roots such a factorization isn't even possible, but i really don't have any more clever idea how to factor this one.

[tex] x^n+x^m+1[/tex] where both n,m are even integers cannot be factored over the integers. That is cannot be written, say as a product of two polynomials with integer coefficients?
