Unformatted text preview: 342 7. FIELD EXTENSIONS – FIRST LOOK As the size of the Galois group is also 8, each of these assignments must determine an element of the Galois group. In particular, we single out two Q–automorphisms of E : p p 4 4 W 2 7! i 2; i 7! i; and p p 4 4 W 2 7! 2; i 7! i : The automorphism is complex conjugation restricted to E . Evidently, is of order 4, and is of order 2. Furthermore, we can 1 . It follows that the Galois group is generated compute that D by and and is isomorphic to the dihedral group D4 . You are asked to check this in the Exercises. We identify p Galois group D4 as a subgroup of S4 , acting on the the r 1 4 2, 1 Ä r Ä 4. With this identification, roots ˛r D i D .1234/ and D .24/. D4 has 10 subgroups (including D4 and fe g). The lattice of subgroups is show in Figure 7.5.2; all of the inclusions in this diagram are of index 2.
