Let P(X) be an irreducible monic polynomial of Open image in new window, d be the discriminant of P(X) and L be the splitting field of P(X). In this paper, we study the class number one problem for the splitting field L or the condition for which the class number of L is equal to 1 using an algebraic approach based on the Hilbert class field towers of some fields.
