The number of quartic D4-fields with monogenic cubic resolvent ordered by conductor

It is an old problem in number theory to count number fields of a fixed degree and having a fixed Galois group for its Galois closure, ordered by their absolute discriminant, say. In this talk, I shall discuss some background of this problem, and then report a recent work with Stanley Xiao. In our paper, we considered quartic $D_4$-fields whose ring of integers has a certain nice algebraic property, and we counted such fields by their conductor.
