 A126270 a(n) = order of Galois group of the polynomial P(x) + n if P(x) + n (after dividing by the gcd of its coefficients) is irreducible, otherwise a(n) = 0, where P(x) = x^8 - 8*x^6 + 20*x^4 - 16*x^2 + 2. 2

LINKS Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Chebyshev Polynomial of the First Kind EXAMPLE Galois group of P+6 = x^8 - 8*x^6 + 20*x^4 - 16*x^2 + 8 is group 6 of degree 8 in MAGMA Transitive Group Identification, permutation group acting on a set of cardinality 8 with two generators, isomorphic to dihedral group D(8); it has index 2520 in symmetric group Sym(8) and order 16. Hence a(6) = 16. a(34) = 0 since P+34 = x^8 - 8*x^6 + 20*x^4 - 16*x^2 + 36 = (x^4 - 8*x^2 + 18)*(x^4 + 2) is not irreducible.
