Abstract: Let $ K$ be a number field and $ d_K$ the absolute value of the discriminant of $ K/\mathbb{Q}$. We consider the root discriminant $ d_L^{\frac {1}{[L:\mathbb{Q}]}}$ of extensions $ L/K$. We show that for any $ N>0$ and any positive integer $ n$, the set of length $ n$ solvable extensions of $ K$ with root discriminant less than $ N$ is finite. The result is motivated by the study of class field towers.
