Abstract. We discuss the construction and factorization pattern of several resolvent polynomials that are useful for computing Galois groups of degree 15 polynomials. As an application, we develop an algorithm for computing the Galois group of a degree 15 polynomial defined over the 5-adic numbers. This algorithm is of interest since it uses substantially fewer resolvents than the traditional method for computing Galois groups.
