Abstract

We count monic quartic polynomials with prescribed Galois group, by box height. Among other things, we obtain the order of magnitude for  quartics, and show that non-quartics are dominated by reducibles. Tools include the geometry of numbers, diophantine approximation, the invariant theory of binary forms, and the determinant method. Joint with Rainer Dietmann.
