Associative algebra. 2. Show that in a principal ideal domain, any nested chain of ideals I 1 I 2 I 3 must necessarily satisfy I k = I k +1 = , for some k 1. 3. Suppose that K and L are finite extensions of a field F . Let M be a finite extension of F such that K,L M , and such that [ M : F ] < [ K : F ] [ L : F ] . Prove that F is properly contained in K L . 4. Let K be the splitting field over Q of the algebraic number = radicalBig 2 + 3 . Compute the Galois group of K/ Q i.e. describe Gal( K/ Q ). 1 5. Suppose that f ( x ) is a particular polynomial of degree 5 whose Galois group (over Q ) has order exceeding 30. Prove that f ( x ) is not solvable in the radicals. 6. Determine the number of degree 11 monic polynomials in F 3 [ x ] that irreducible (write down the exact number).irreducible (write down the exact number)....
