Math 220C Name Spring 2008 Midterm Exam – Round Two May 5, 2008 Instructions: (1) In round two of the midterm, you may supplement the answers you gave during the in-class exam in any way you choose. This is an open-book exam, but you may not consult other people. “Round two” is due at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 7 in room 6635 South Hall (at the start of the makeup lecture). (2) There are six problems, and 100 total points, on this exam. 1. (15 points) Let L be a subfield of the complex numbers C such that [ L : Q ] = 2. Let α Q such that α 6∈ Q and Q ( α ) 6 = L . Let M be the smallest subfield of C containing both Q ( α ) and L . Show that [ M : Q ] = 4. How many intermediate subfields are there? 2. (15 points) Let ζ = e 2 πi/ 15 and let K = Q ( ζ ). Show that any automorphism of the field K must map ζ to a primitive 15 th root of unity, and that every primitive 15 th root of unity is the image of ζ under at least one automorphism of K . 3. (15 points) Let ζ = e 2 πi/ 15 and let K = Q ( ζ ). Find all natural numbers N such

(15 points) Let = e 2 i/ 15 . Show that (1 + 2 3 + 2 12 ) 2 Q . Conclude that [ Q (1 + 2 3 + 2 12 ) : Q ] = 2. Hint: Cyclotomic polynomials may help. 6. (25 points) Let = e 2 i/ 15 and let K = Q ( ). (a) Show that K is a Galois extension of Q , and nd the Galois group G ( K : Q ). (b) Find all subgroups of G ( K : Q ), and the inclusion relations among them. (c) Exhibit as many intermediate elds for the extension K Q as you can. (Hint: Use earlier problems on this exam.) (d) Be as explicit as you can about the Galois correspondence between subgroups of the Galois group G ( K : Q ) and intermediate elds for the extension K Q ....
