Fall 2009 MAT 322: ALGEBRA WITH GALOIS THEORY PROBLEM SET #2 Week #1: September 28th - October 4th. Topics : Universal property of quotients, the isomorphism theorems, subgroups of quotients, direct products, structure of finitely generated abelian groups, the dual group of characters, orthogonality relations, group actions, orbits, stabilizers, the class equation, Cauchy’s theorem on existence of elements of prime order. Read : GT [19-26] and GT [50-57] Problems due Friday, October 2nd, at 4:00 pm in Martin Luu’s mailbox: Problem 1 : Show that S n is generated by the tranpositions s i = ( i, i + 1) , and that they satisfy 1 the braid group relations: That is, s i s j = s j s i when | i - j | > 1 , and s i s j s i = s j s i s j when | i - j | = 1 . Problem 2 : Is D 4 isomorphic to Q 8 ? Problem 3 : Show that any subgroup of Z is of the form n Z , for a unique non-negative integer n .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
