 Infinite Families of $A_4$-Sextic Polynomials In this article we develop a test to determine whether a sextic polynomial that is irreducible over $\mathbb{Q}$ has Galois group isomorphic to the alternating group $A_4$. This test does not involve the computation of resolvents, and we use this test to construct several infinite families of such polynomials. Keywords:Galois group, sextic polynomial, inverse Galois theory, irreducible polynomialCategories:12F10, 12F12, 11R32, 11R09

 Cohomological Dimension and Schreier's Formula in Galois Cohomology Let $p$ be a prime and $F$ a field containing a primitive $p$-th root of unity. Then for $n\in \N$, the cohomological dimension of the maximal pro-$p$-quotient $G$ of the absolute Galois group of $F$ is at most $n$ if and only if the corestriction maps $H^n(H,\Fp) \to H^n(G,\Fp)$ are surjective for all open subgroups $H$ of index $p$. Using this result, we generalize Schreier's formula for $\dim_{\Fp} H^1(H,\Fp)$ to $\dim_{\Fp} H^n(H,\Fp)$. Keywords:cohomological dimension, Schreier's formula, Galois theory, $p$-extensions, pro-$p$-groupsCategories:12G05, 12G10
