For any field F, there is a relation between the factorization of a polynomial f is an element of F[x(1),..., x(n)] and the integral decomposition of the Newton polytope of f. We extended this result to polynomial rings R[x(1),...,x(n)] where R is any ring containing some elements which are not zero-divisors. Moreover, we have constructed some new families of integrally indecomposable polytopes in R-n giving infinite families of absolutely irreducible multivariate polynomials over arbitrary fields.
