Note that for each d , K d x 1 ;:::;x n is invariant under the action of S n , and K S x 1 ;:::;x n is the direct sum of the vector subspaces K S d x 1 ;:::;x n D K d x 1 ;:::;x n \ K S x 1 ;:::;x n for d . See Exercise 9.6.3 . Lemma 9.6.1. (a) The action of S n on Kx 1 ;:::;x n is an action by ring automorphisms; the action of of S n on K.x 1 ;:::;x n / is an action by by eld automorphisms. (b) K S x 1 ;:::;x n is a subring of Kx 1 ;:::;x n and K S .x 1 ;:::;x n / is a subeld of K.x 1 ;:::;x n / . (c) The eld of symmetric rational functions is the eld of fractions of the ring of symmetric polynomials in nvariables....
