Square roots of polynomials
Posted:
Mar 24, 2014 7:16 PM


Hi all,
Let P(x) be a polynomial with integer coefficients such that, for each natural number _n_, P(n) is a perfect square. Does it follow that P(x) is the square of some polynomial with integer coefficients?
Best regards,
Jose Carlos Santos
