Dear Gap Forum,

misunderstanding by me or a serious problem. I examined

SmallGroup(16,1) through SmallGroup(16,14) using IsomorphicSubgroups,

present a degree-16 polynomial, whose Galois group is of size 16, and

which contains subfields with both Galois group TransitiveGroup(8,3)

and TransitiveGroup(8,5). If some1 can explain me how this is NOT a

Subfields correspond to factor groups, not subgroups and SmallGroup(16,13)

has two such factor groups.

Best regards,
