Abstract

In the paper, the polynomials with integer coefficients are considered and a hypothetical sufficient condition for these polynomials to take infinitely many primes as their values is proposed. That provides an alternative equivalent variant of the famous Dirichlet’s theorem for infinitely many primes in arithmetic progressions. Also an interesting analogy between the behaviour of polynomial’s zeros and the integers for which the polynomial takes prime values is noted.
