Statement

Suppose are all irreducible polynomials with integer coefficients and with positive leading coefficient, such that the product does not have any fixed divisors, i.e., it cannot be expressed as a proper multiple of an integer-valued polynomial. Schinzel's hypothesis H states that there are infinitely many natural numbers satisfying the condition that are all simultaneously prime.
