7.1. ALGEBRAIC PRELIMINARIES 167 7.1.2 Finitely Generated and Free Abelian Groups Let G be an Abelian group. Let g 1 , . . . , g r G be some elements of G and H = r k = 1 n k g k | g k G , n k Z be a set of linear combinations of g k . Then H is a subgroup of G . The elements g k are called the generators of H and H is said to be generated by g k . If a group G is generated by finitely many elements of G , then G is called a finitely generated group. The elements g 1 , . . . , g r are linearly independent if for any integer coe ffi - cients n 1 , . . . , n r the linear combination r k = 1 n k g k 0 is not equal to zero. A finitely generated group G is called a free Abelian group of rank r if it is generated by r linearly independent elements.

Unformatted text preview: An Abelian group generated by one element is called a cyclic group . • Infinite cyclic groups. • Finite cyclic group. • Theorem 7.1.3 Fundamental Theorem of Finitely Generated Abelian Groups. Let G be a finitely generated Abelian group with m generators. Then G is isomorphic to the direct sum of cyclic groups, G ± Z ⊕ ··· ⊕ Z | ±±±±±±± {z ±±±±±±± } r ⊕ Z k 1 ⊕ ··· ⊕ Z k p , where m = r + p. The number r is called the rank of G.

    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.
