... where each pi is a prime ideal. Show that OK /(2)OK = ni=1 F2 . (b) Let d be a positive integer. Show that there are exactly 2d distinct ring homomorphisms F2 [X1 , X2 , . . . , Xd ] → F2 . Deduce that, in the notation of (a), if OK has d generators over Z, then [K : Q] ≤ 2d . (3) Let ζ be a 151-th ...

... 1. Let φ : V → W be a linear transformation of vector spaces over the field F . The kernel of φ is by definition the set ker(φ) ⊂ V of vectors v in V such that φ(v) = 0. The image of φ is the subset im(φ) of vectors w ∈ W for which there exists some v ∈ V such that φ(v) = w. (1) Show that the kernel ...

For example, 2/3 is a rational number, and so is –22/7, but isn’t a rational number and neither is 2 . It turns out that the rational numbers are the ones ...

Algebraic closure

... Any algebraic field extension E of F can have at most as many elements as the set S. (Every α ∈ E is a root of some polynomial f (x) = a0 + a1 x + a2 x2 + · · · + an xn ∈ F [x], which has at most n different roots in E.) In order to get even more elements, we take the powerset P(S) of S and recall t ...
