A field is a collection of ‘numbers’ with addition and multiplication defined on it so as to behave analogously to the reals or rationals: there is a 0 for addition, a 1 for multiplication, you can divide consistently, etc. When the number of elements of the field is n, a non-negative integer, it is ...

MATH 123: ABSTRACT ALGEBRA II SOLUTION SET # 11 1

... Problem 12 Determine all automorphisms of the field Q(3 2). From class we saw that if f (α) = 0, then the √ automorphisms of Q(α) send α to another root of f (x). This is true if we let α = 3 2. But the other roots are β = αζ and γ = αζ 2 , both which are not real. Thus an automorphism of Q(α) canno ...

Finite Abelian Groups as Galois Groups

... can now take both f0 (X), g0 (X) to be monic. But since these are just rational number multiples of the original f (X) and g(X), which are monic, we must have f0 (X) = f (X) and g0 (X) = g(X), which gives what we wanted. We’re now ready for our first major step. Theorem A. Let ϵ be a primitive nth r ...

Évariste Galois (French: [evaʁist ɡaˈlwa]; 25 October 1811 – 31 May 1832) was a French mathematician born in Bourg-la-Reine. While still in his teens, he was able to determine a necessary and sufficient condition for a polynomial to be solvable by radicals, thereby solving a problem standing for 350 years. His work laid the foundations for Galois theory and group theory, two major branches of abstract algebra, and the subfield of Galois connections. He died at age 20 from wounds suffered in a duel.
