Let ' W G ±! H be a homomorphism of groups with kernel N . For a;x 2 G , show that '.a/ D '.x/ , a ± 1 x 2 N , aN D xN: Here aN denotes f an W n 2 N g . 2.4.8. Let ' W G ±! H be a homomorphism of G onto H . If A is a normal subgroup of G , show that '.A/ is a normal subgroup of H . 2.4.9. Deﬁne a map ² from D n to C 2 D f˙ 1 g by ².±/ D 1 if ± does not interchange top and bottom of the n-gon, and ².±/ D ± 1 if ± does interchange top and bottom of the n-gon. Show that ² is a homomorphism. The following exercises examine an important homomorphism from S n to C 2 D f˙ 1 g (for any n )....
