1 Warmup: The quaternion group, denoted Q 8, is the set {1, 1, i, i, j, j, k, k} with product given by 1 a = a 1 = a a Q 8, ( 1) ( 1) = 1, i 2 = j 2 = k 2 = 1, ( 1) a = a ( 1) = a a Q 8, (Think: three copies of C) i j = k = j i, j k = i = k j, k i = j = i k. (Think: crossproduct with i = v 1, j = v 2, k = v 3 ) You try: 1. Write the group table (multiplication table) for Q Compute the order of each of the 8 elements of Q 8.

3 Isomorphisms Consider the subgroup of S 6 generated by r = ( ) and s = (16)(25)(34)
4 Isomorphisms Consider the subgroup of S 6 generated by r = ( ) and s = (16)(25)(34) In some sense, this subgroup is the same as D 12, but in some sense, they re not the same until I name them appropriately. Since we don t want to call them the same, we call them isomorphic.
