Abstract: Let $f,g\in \mathbb{Z}[X]$ be non-constant polynomials with integral coefficients. In 1968 H. Davenport raised the question as to when the value sets $f(\mathbb{Z})$ and $g(\mathbb{Z})$ are the same modulo all but finitely many primes. The main progress until now is M. Fried's result that $f$ and $g$ then differ by a linear substitution, provided that $f$ is functionally indecomposable. We extend this result to polynomials $f$ of composition length $2$. Also, we study the analog when $\mathbb{Z}$ is replaced by the integers of a number field. The above number theoretic property translates to an equivalent property of subgroups of a finite group, known as Kronecker conjugacy, a weakening of conjugacy which has been studied by various authors under different assumptions and in other contexts.

We also give a simplified and strengthened version of the Galois theoretic translation to finite groups.
