Some specific field extensions L|K are classified as Galois extensions. We call the group of automorphisms of such L|K the Galois group of L|K. The inverse Galois problem asks the question whether every finite group is isomorphic to the Galois group of a Galois extension of the rational numbers. We describe the known solutions of this problem for abelian groups, for the symmetric groups S_n and for the alternating groups A_n and even establish specific Galois extensions for the latter two. We conclude with a description of a way to establish some semidirect products as Galois groups.
