Homework 7 Solutions
Problem 1 (6.4.18). Let T : V W where V, W are finite dimensional inner product spaces. Show that (a) (2 points) T T and T T are positive semi-definite, and (b) (4 points) rank(T ) = rank(T T ) = rank(T T ). Proof. (a) Clearly T T is
Throughout in this text V will be a vector space of nite dimension n
over a eld K and T : V V will be a linear transformation.

A scalar K is an eigenvalue of T if there is a nonzero v V such that
T v = v. In this case v is c

Denition 16.1. A normal series of a group G is a sequence of subgroups:
G = H0 H1 H2 Hm = 1
so that each subgroup is normal in the previous one (Hi Hi1 ). The quotient
groups Hi1 /Hi is called a subquotients. A renement of a nor
MATH 30A FALL 04
Homework This is homework from Math 30a, Fall 2004. I was teaching only one course. So I had a lot of time to prepare the course. The book was John Fraleigh A rst course in Abstract Algebra, 7th edition. We covered the rst four chapters.

An easy element of order 4 is (1234), so how to get others?
We can put two disjoint 4 cycles together: (1234)(5678)
We can also add a disjoint 2 cycles: (1234)(56), (1234)(56)(78)
That's it. Any cycle length divides the order of the el

[16.1] Let p be the smallest prime dividing the order of a nite group G. Show that a subgroup H of G of
index p is necessarily normal.
Let G act on cosets gH of H by left multiplication. This gives a homomorphism f of G to the group of

Theorem (see Proposition 2.59, page 172):
If G is a nite abelian group, then G has a subgroup of order d for every divisor d of |G|.
Theorem (Cayley) (see Theorem 2.66, page 178):
Every group G is isomorphic to a subgroup of t
7.3.12. If G is a nite group of order n, and p is the least prime such
that p j n, show that any subgroup of index p is normal in G.
Let H be a subgroup of index p in G. Consider the action of G on the set
S of left cosets of H given by a xH = axH as in E
