262 5. ACTIONS OF GROUPS 5.6.5. Let G be the rotation group of the cube, acting on the set of faces of the cube. Show that map F 7! Stab .F / is 2-to-1, from the set of faces to the set of stabilizer subgroups of faces. 5.6.6. Let G D S n and H D Stab .n/ Š S n 1 . Show that H is its own normalizer, so that the cosets of H correspond 1-to-1 with conjugates of H . Describe the conjugates of H explicitly. 5.6.7. Identify the group G of rotations of the cube with S 4 , via the action on the diagonals of the cube. G also acts transitively on the set of set of three 4–fold rotation axes of the cube; this gives a homomorphism of S 4 into S 3 . (a) Compute the resulting homomorphism of S 4 to S 3 explicitly. (For example, compute the image of a set of generators of S 4 .) Show that is surjective. Find the kernel of . (b) Show that the stabilizer of each 4–fold rotation axis is conjugate to D 4 S 4 . (c) Show that L 7! Stab .L/ is a bijection between the set of 4–fold rotation axes and the stabilizer subgroups of these axes in 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.
