Example text

Then d — nop+moa. By the Euclidean algorithm write p = kd+r where k, r € Z + andO < r < d. Then r = p—k(nop+moa) = (l — kno)p+moa, that is r G S. Since r < d and d is the smallest such positive integer, 26 Chapter 1 What is a Number? we conclude that r = 0 and therefore p = kd. But since p is a prime, either d = p or d — 1. Suppose d = p. Applying the Euclidean algorithm to a and d tells us a = jd + ri where 0 < r\ < d. This gives us something in S, namely ri, smaller than d. Therefore 0 = r\ and a = jp, a contradiction since we are assuming that p doesn't divide a.

This statement is the exact analogue of the Euclidean algorithm in Z. Hence, reasoning exactly as in Z, we also get the analogues (see below) of all its consequences. As a test of your understanding of these facts in Z it would be worthwhile proving their analogues for polynomials. Here a polynomial is called a prime polynomial if it can't be factored into polynomials of positive degree. 2. / / a prime polynomial p(x) divides a(x)b(x), where a(x) and b(x) are polynomials, then p(x) divides a(x) or b(x) (or both).

Observe that conjugate subgroups of a group are isomorphic. 3. Let / : G\ —> G2 be a group homomorphism and let G\ act on / ( G i ) by left multiplication through / . Show this is a transitive action. Show that the stability group is Kerf. Show that the Gi-equivariant equivalence given in the theorem above of this action with the action of G\ on the orbit f(G\) gives the first isomorphism theorem.
