Unformatted text preview: 336 7. FIELD EXTENSIONS – FIRST LOOK 7.4.4. If F L is a field extension, show that Aut F .L/ is a subgroup of Aut .L/ . 7.4.5. Suppose F L is any field extension, f.x/ 2 FOExŁ , and ˇ 1 ;:::;ˇ r are the distinct roots of f.x/ in L . Prove the following statements. (a) If is an automorphism of L that leaves F fixed pointwise, then jf ˇ 1 ;:::;ˇ r g is a permutation of f ˇ 1 ;:::;ˇ r g . (b) 7! jf ˇ 1 ;:::;ˇ r g is a homomorphism of Aut F .L/ into the group of permutations Sym . f ˇ 1 ;:::;ˇ r g / . (c) If L is a splitting field of f.x/ , L D K.ˇ 1 ;:::;ˇ r / , then the homomorphism 7! jf ˇ 1 ;:::;ˇ r g is injective. 7.4.6. Let f.x/ 2 KOExŁ be an irreducible cubic polynomial, with splitting field E . Let H be a subgroup of Aut K .E/ . Show that Fix .H/ is a field intermediate between K and E . In the following two exercises, suppose K E be the splitting field of an irreducible cubic polynomial in KOExŁ and that dim K .E/ D 6 ....
