Emmert Group Actions and Permutation Representations Groups Acting on Themselves by Left Multiplication Cayleys Theorem Groups Acting on Themselves by ConjugationThe Class Equation Automorphisms Sylows Theorem Transitive Definition 1 Let G be a group acting on the nonempty set A . 1. The equivalence class { g a  g G } is called the orbit of G containing a . 2. The action of G on A is called transitive if there is only one orbit, i.e., given any two elements a , b A there is some g G such that a = g b . Chapter 4: Group Actions Keith E. Emmert Group Actions and Permutation Representations Groups Acting on Themselves by Left Multiplication Cayleys Theorem Groups Acting on Themselves by ConjugationThe Class Equation Automorphisms Sylows Theorem Some Theory Theorem 2 Let G be a group, let H be a subgroup of G and let G act by left multiplication on the set A of left cosets of H in G. Let H be the associated permutation representation afforded by this action. Then 1. G acts transitively on A. 2. the stabilizer in G of the point 1 H A is the subgroup H. 3. the kernel of the action (i.e., the kernel of H ) is intersectiondisplay x G xHx 1 and Ker ( H ) is the largest normal subgroup of G contained in H.
