“Some applications of the large sieve”

In this talk we will take an interlude before we head towards the endgame of proving the Bombieri- Vinogradov theorem by discussing some very interesting applications of the large sieve. Specifically, we will see why the large sieve yields a proof that 100 percent of polynomials of a given degree have the full symmetric group as their Galois group.
