I'm studying for my abstract algebra exam and I had a question and was wondering if anyone could help me out. If I'm given a polynomial is there a method to find the splitting field of the polynomial and the degree of that field? My book basically just gives the definition of a splitting field and there are really no examples. Thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
