New PDF release: Foundations of Analysis: A Straightforward Introduction:

In undemanding introductions to mathematical research, the remedy of the logical and algebraic foundations of the topic is unavoidably particularly skeletal. This e-book makes an attempt to flesh out the bones of such therapy via offering a casual yet systematic account of the rules of mathematical research written at an effortless point.

The canonical homomorphism ': G ! G=H is onto and has kernel H containing N , so Lemma 14 provides a surjection ': G=N ! G=H with kernel H=N ; we conclude with Noether I. Example 170 . De ne G = Z; N = 6Z, and H = 3Z. Then Z=3Z (Z=6Z)=(3Z=6Z) Z =3Z . ) Theorem 18. (Noether III) If N / G and H < G; then H \ N / H and H= H \ N NH=N . Proof. De ne ': H ! NH=N by h 7! Nh. Clearly ' is onto, and ker ' = fh 2 H : Nh = eg = fh 2 H : h 2 N g = H \ N , so we conclude with Noether I. For any H < G, the proof of Theorem 18 shows that NH=N is the image of H in G=N under the canonical homomorphism G !

In studying the converse we shall learn how to count. Theorem 1 (Cauchy's theorem). If a prime number p divides jGj; then G has an element of order p. 1. However, we proceed directly to the proof in general. The proof becomes rather easy for p = 2, as given in Exercise 1, so the reader is advised to try that rst. Proof of Theorem 1. Let S = fg 2 G : gp = eg. Clearly e 2 S , so jS j 1. , o(g) = 1 or p; since e is the only element of order 1 our goal is to show jS j 2. This is not an easy task, and the trick is to show p divides jS j; then jS j p 2.

We shall consider this issue in more detail in Chapter 10, when conjugacy is used to de ne an equivalence relation. Now we apply this argument to determine the nontrivial normal subgroups of S and S . (13)(12)(13) = (32) 62 h(12)i, which thus is not a normal subgroup of S ; analogously h(13)i and h(23)i are not normal subgroups. On the other hand every conjugate of (123) is a cycle of order 3 and thus can be rewritten as (123) or (132) = (123) , and so belongs to h(123)i ; this proves (for the third time) h(123)i / S .
