If m and n are coprime and x is algebraic of degree n and y is of degree m
then x+y is of degree n+m. I think therefore, as long as we can produce two
coprime numbers <=n (and >1) we will have RAlg_n[i] larger than ALg_n. So
for n>2 we shouldn't get equality.
For n=1 Alg_n doesn't contain i.
For n=2 Alg_n doesn't contain \sqrt{2}+i\sqrt{3}. The minimal polynomial
has degree 4.
For n=3 Alg_n doesn't contain \sqrt[3]{2}+i\sqrt[3]{3}. The minimal
polynomial has degree 18.
