H G is a subgroup iff x, y H xy 1 H. Theorem 1.2. If f is an isomorphism, then f 1 is an isomorphism. Theorem 1.3. N G is normal gxg 1 N x N, g G. Definition 1.1 (Conjugaison). In Prof. Bar-Natan s notation, x g = g 1 xg. Automorphism = self-isomorphism, and the function defined by is the Inner automorphism coming from g. Theorem 1.4. Inn(G) Aut(G) Theorem 1.5. Ker(φ) G x gxg 1 Theorem 1.6. Suppose N G. Then there exists a group H and an homomorphism φ : G H such that N = Ker(φ). Remark 1.1. Take H = G/N. 1

2 2 LOUIS-PHILIPPE THIBAULT Definition 1.2 (Centralizer, normalizer, center). X G. Centralizer: C G (X) = {g G gxg 1 = x x X}. Centre: Z(G) = C G (G). Normalizer: N G (X) = {g G gxg 1 = X}. Remark 1.2. If X G, then X is a normal subgroup iff N G (X) = G. Theorem 1.7. Let < X > be the subgroup of G generated by X, i-e the smallest subgroup of G containing X. Then C G (X) = C G (< X >) and N G (X) = N G (< X >) Isomorphism Theorems. Theorem 1.8 (Fundamental theorem of Homomorphisms). Let G, H be two groups and φ : G H be an homomorphism. Let K G and ψ : G G/K be the natural surjective homomorphism. If K Ker(φ), then there exists a unique homomorphism α : G/K H such that φ = αψ. Theorem 1.9 (First Isomorphism theorem). Let φ : G H be an homomorphism. Then G/Ker(φ) = Im(φ). Theorem H, K G. Then HK G HK = KH. Corollary Let H, K be subgroups of G. If H N G (K), then HK G and K HK. Corollary If K G, then HK < G for any H G. Theorem 1.13 (Second Isomorphism Theorem). Let H, K be subgroups of G such that H N G (K).Then, (H K) H, K HK and HK/K = H/(H K). Theorem 1.14 (Third Isomorphism Theorem). Let K G, H G, K H. Then, H/K G/K and (G/K)/(H/K) = G/H. Theorem Let N G. Then q : G G/N induces a bijection between the subgroups of G which contain N and the subgroups of G/N Jordan- Holder Theorem. Theorem Givin a finite G, there exists a sequence G = G 0 G 1 G 2 G 3... G n = {e} such that H i = G i /G i+1 is simple. Furthermore, the set {H 0,..., H n 1 is unique up to a permutation. Remark 1.3. The sequence is called a tower and the set is called a composition series of G. Definition 1.3 (solvable groups). A solvable group is a group whose Jordan-Holder composition series has only Abelian factors. Definition 1.4 (commutator). Given x, y G, the commutator [x, y] is given by [x, y] = xyx 1 y 1. We denote by G the group generated by all commutators of G. Theorem G G, G/G is abelian and any morphism from G into an abelian group factors through G/G. Remark 1.4. A equivalent definition of solvable groups is the following: A group G is solvable is there exists an n such that G (n) = {e}, where G (n) = (G (n 1) ). The two definitions are equivalent because for every group G and every normal subgroup N of G, the quotient G/N is abelian N contains G. Example 1.1. A n is not solvable for n 5, because they are simple. In particular, [A n, A n ] = A n. Theorem If N G, then G is solvable N and G/N are. Also, if H < G and G is solvable, then H is solvable.

3 1.4. Symmetric Group. Theorem Let σ, τ S n, σ = (a (1) 1... a (r 1) SUMMARY ALGEBRA I 3 1 )... (a (1) n... a (rn) n ). Then, τστ 1 = (τ 1 (a (1) 1 )... τ 1 (a (r 1) 1 ))... (τ 1 (a (1) n )... τ 1 (a (rn) n )). Corollary τστ 1 have the same cycle decomposition as σ. Also, σ is conjugated to σ if and only if σ and σ have the same cycle type. Corollary The number of conjugacy classes in S n is equal to the number of partitions of n. Theorem A n is simple. Theorem S 4 contains no normal subgroup isomorphic to S Group action on Sets. Definition 1.5 (Group action). A group G acting on a set X is a binary map G X X, denoted (g, x) gx such that (g 1, g 2 )x = g 1 (g 2 x) ex = x Then X is called a G-set. Definition 1.6 (Transitive set, Stabilizer, Orbits, fix points). Four definitions: Transitive set: X is transitive if for all x, y X, there exists g G such that gx = y. Orbits: Orb(x) = Gx = {gx g G}. X/G is the set of all orbits. Stabilizer: Stab X (x) = G x = {g G gx = x} < G. Fix Points : X g = {x X gx = x}. Definition 1.7 (G-morphisms). A map f : X Y is a G-morphism between two G-sets if f(gx) = gf(x) for all g G. Theorem Three properties of group actions: Every G-set X is a disjoint union of transitive G-sets. Those are the orbits. If Y is a transitive G-set, then Y = G/H as a G-set for some H < G. If X is a transitive G-set and x X, then X = G/(Stab X (x)). So, X G. Corollary If X < and x i are representatives of the orbits, then X = i G Stab X (x i ) = i G xi. Remark 1.5. In particular, G/Stab X (x i ) = G xi, so G = Stab X (x i ) G xi. Theorem Theorem 1.27 (Burnside s lemma). Gx = [G : G x ] X/G = 1 G where X/G denotes the number of orbits. X g, Theorem If X < and x i are the representatives of the orbits with more then one element, then g G G = Z(G) + i G C G (x i ).

4 4 LOUIS-PHILIPPE THIBAULT 1.6. Sylow s theorems. Definition 1.8 (Sylow-p subgroup). Let G = p α m, with p m. We say that P < G is a Sylow-p subgroup of G if P = p α. Lemma 1.29 (Cauchy Theorem). If A is an abelian group and p A, then there exists some element of order p in A. Theorem 1.30 (Cauchy Theorem). If p G, then there exists an element of order p in G. Theorem 1.31 (Sylow Theorem 1). Let Syl p (G) = {P < G : P = p α }. Then Syl p (G). Theorem 1.32 (Sylow Theorem 2). Every p-subgroups of G is contained in some Sylow-p subgroup G. Two lemmas: Lemma If P Syl p (G) and H < N G (P ) is a p-group, then H < P. Lemma If x G has order a power of p, and x N G (P ), then x P. Theorem 1.35 (Sylow Theorem 3). Let n p (G) = Syl p (G). Then, n p G ; n p 1 mod p; All Sylow-p subgroups of G are conjugate (so isomorphic) to each other. The Sylow-1 and Sylow-2 theorems can be deduced from the two following propositions. Proposition If R Syl p (G), then n R (G) = conjugates of R 1 mod p and n R (G) G. Proposition If H is a p-subgroup of G and P Syl p (G), then H is contained in a conjugate of P. Example 1.2. See examples in the course notes of groups of order 12, 15, 21. Make sure that every n p is possible. Sometimes not because of the lack of space. Also, make sure that every semi-direct product found is not isomorphic to another one. Also, if P G, then P Q is a subgroup. Then, if we now its order, and know how many Q -sylow subgroups it has, we can conclude that Q P Q and so N G (Q) P Q. Then, it gives less room for the other Sylow subgroup. Also, if two elements x, y commute, then xy = x y. The presentation will be of the form {generator of H and N presentation of N, presentation of H, yxy 1 = φ y (x)} Semidirect product. Theorem If K G, H G, K H = {e}, then KH = K H. Definition 1.9 (Semidirect product). Suppose N, H are groups and φ : H Aut(N) is a homomorphism. Then the semi-direct product of N and H is defined as follow: with product N φ H = N H (n 1, h 1 )(n 2, h 2 ) (n 1 φ(n 2 ), h 1 h 2 ) Theorem G = N H is a group. Also, H < G, N G, G/N = H, G = NH. Theorem If G = NH, N G, H < G, H N = {e}. Then, G = N φ H, where φ h (n) = hnh 1. Theorem Let φ : G K be a group homomorphism. Suppose there exists a group homomorphism s : K G such that φs = 1 K. Then, G = Ker(φ) K.

5 SUMMARY ALGEBRA I 5 Theorem Let H G. Let i : H G be the inclusion map. Suppose there exists a group homomorphism such that ri = 1 H. Then, 1.8. Some other useful facts. G = H G/H. Theorem Let G be a group. Then, φ : G G given by φ(g) = g 2 is a homomorphism if and only if G is abelian. Theorem If G/Z(G) is cyclic, then G is abelian. Moreover, if Aut(G) is cyclic, then G is abelian. Theorem Let G be a group, and H be a subgroup of finite index. Then there exists a normal subgroup N of G such that N is contained in H and [G : N] <. Theorem Aut(Z p ) = C p Basic Notions. 2. Ring Theory Definition 2.1 (Ring). A ring is a set R with two binary operations: + : R R R : R R R and two elements 0 1 R (1 is not always required) such that (1) (R,+,0) is an Abelian group; (2) For all a, b, c (ab)c = a(bc); (3) 1 a = a 1 = a, a; (4) (a + b)c = ac + bc; a(b + c) = ab + ac. Example 2.1. Given a ring R, we can define the polynomial ring with coefficients in R, denoted by R[x]. R[x] = { d i=0 α ix i α i R}. The multiplication is given by: d 1 d 2 d 1 +d 2 k ( a i x i )( b j x j ) = ( a i b k i )x k ). i=0 i=0 Definition 2.1 (Ring homomorphism). If R, S are rings, a ring homomorphism φ : R S has the following properties: (1) φ(0) = 0, φ(1) = 1; (2) φ(a + b) = φ(a) + φ(b); (3) φ(ab) = φ(a)φ(b). Definition 2.2 (Kernel). The Kernel of an homomorphism is given by Ker(φ) = φ 1 (0). Definition 2.3 (Ideal). I R is called an ideal if it is an additive subgroup of R and if r R, a I implies ra, ar I. Theorem 2.1. Given R, S two rings and φ : R S a morphism, we have (1) Im(φ) is a subgroup of S. (2) Ker(φ) is not a subring because it does not contain 1. In fact, it is an ideal in R. As in group theory, given I R an ideal in a ring, there is always a morphism φ : R S such that Ker(φ) = I. In fact, just take the quotient ring S = R/I. s k=0 i=0

6 6 LOUIS-PHILIPPE THIBAULT Definition 2.4 (Quotient ring). Define an equivalence relation on R by r 1 r 2 if r 1 r 2 I, then the quotient ring is S = R/ = R/I = {[r] I r R}. It is a ring. Definition 2.5 (Ideal generated by A R). The ideal generated by A, denoted by A, is the smallest ideal containing A. It is also the intersection of all ideals containing A. Theorem 2.2. A = { n r i a i r i a i A, r i, r i R}. i= Isomorphism Theorems. The isomorphism theorems are analogous to those in group theory. The proofs are similar. Theorem 2.3 (First Isomorphism theorem). Given φ : R S a ring homomorphism. Then R/Kerφ = Imφ. Example 2.2. R[x]/ x is a ring isomorphic to C, using the first isomorphism theorem. Theorem 2.4 (Second Isomorphism theorem). Given A R a subring and I R an ideal, we have (A + I)/I = A/(A I). Theorem 2.5 (Third Isomorphism theorem). If I J R are both ideals, then (R/I)/(J/I) = R/J. Theorem 2.6 (Fourth Isomorphism Theorem). If I is an ideal in R, then there is a bijection between ideals in R/I and ideals between I and R Different types of Rings. Definition 2.6 (Field). If R is commutative and R is a group, then we say that R is a field. Definition 2.7 (Division Ring). If R is a group, then we say that R is a division ring. Example 2.3. The Quaternions, denoted by H, are a non-commutative division ring: H = {a + bi + cj + dk a, b, c, d R, i 2 = j 2 = k 2 = 1, ij = k, jk = i, ki = j}. We will now always assume without saying it that R is commutative unless otherwise explicitly stated. Definition 2.8 (Integral domain). R is an integral domain if whenever a 0, ab = 0 b = 0. Remark 2.1. R is an integral domain if and only if whenever a 0, ab = ac b = c. Definition 2.9 (0 divisors). If a 0, and there exists b 0 such that ab = 0, then we say that a is a 0 divisor. It is clear that R is an integral domain if and only if it is abelian and it has no 0-divisor. Definition 2.10 (Maximal Ideals). An ideal I R is maximal if (1) I R (1 I); (2) If J I is an ideal, then J = I or J = R. Lemma 2.7. A field F is a ring whose only ideals are {0} and F.

7 SUMMARY ALGEBRA I 7 Theorem 2.8. Given a ring R and an ideal I, R/I is a field if and only if I is maximal. Theorem 2.9. Every ideal is contained in a maximal ideal. Definition 2.11 (Prime ideal). An ideal P R is called prime if whenever b P, ab P a P. Theorem P R is prime if and only if R/P is a domain. Corollary Every maximal ideal is prime. Example 2.4. A example of a prime ideal not maximal is x Z[x]. Indeed, Z[x]/ x = Z is a domain, but not a field. We now assume R is a domain. Definition 2.12 (Division). Let a, b R. We say that a divides b and write a b if there exists c such that ac = b. Theorem If a b and b a, then a = ub, where u is a unit, that is, u is invertible. Remark 2.2. In this case, we say that a b. This is an equivalence relation. Definition 2.13 (Greatest Common Divisor). Given a, b R, we say that q is a greatest common divisor of a and b if (1) q a and q b; (2) If q a and q b, then q q. Remark 2.3. There exists not always a g.c.d., but if one exists, it is unique up to a unit. Definition 2.14 (Prime). If p R \ (R {0}), then we say that p is a prime if p ab p a or p b. Remark 2.4. It follows that such p is prime if and only if p is prime. Definition 2.15 (Irreducible). If x R \ (R {0}), then we say that x is irreducible if x = ab a R or b R. Remark 2.5. Every prime is irreducible. However, the converse is not true. Example 2.5. In Z[ 5], 2 is irreducible but not a prime. Definition 2.16 (Unique Factorisation domain). A ring R is a unique factorization domain if every non-zero element in R can be factored as a product of primes, i.-e., if x 0, then there exists primes p 1, p 2,..., p n such that x = up 1, p 2,..., p n, where u R. Theorem Such a decomposition is unique up to units and permutations. Theorem In a UFD R, an element x R is prime if and only if it is irreducible. Theorem A ring R is a UFD if and only if every nonzero element of R has a unique decomposition into irreducible elements. Theorem In a UFD, gcd(a, b) always exists. Definition 2.17 (Euclidean domain). A ring R is a Euclidean domain if it has an Euclidean norm: e : R \ {0} N, such that (1) e(ab) e(a) for all b R; (2) For all a, b R \ {0}, there exists q, r R such that a = qb + r and either r = 0 or e(r) < e(b).

8 8 LOUIS-PHILIPPE THIBAULT Example 2.6. Two examples: (1) Z with e(a) = a is a Euclidean domain. (2) Let F be a field. Then R = F[x] is Euclidean with e(f) = deg(f). Definition 2.18 (Principal Ideal domain). R is a principal ideal domain if every ideal in R is principal, that is, generated by a single element. Theorem Every Euclidean domain is a principal ideal domain. Theorem In a PID, every prime ideal is maximal. Definition 2.19 (Noetherian ring). A Noetherian ring is a ring in which whenever I 1 I 2 I 3... is an increasing chain of ideals, then there exists N such that n N I n = I n+1. Lemma Every PID is Noetherian. Theorem Every PID is a UFD. Remark 2.6. In a PID, a, b = gcd(a, b). gcd(a, b) = sa + tb. In particular, there exists s, t R such that Remark 2.7. In a Euclidean domain, the Euclidean algorithm is a pratical way to find s and t in remark 2.6. Remark 2.8. A ring R is a PID if and only if it has a Dedekind-Hasse norm d : R \ {0} N \ {0}, such that if a, b 0, then either a b or there exists 0 x a, b such that d(x) < d(b) Basic Notions. 3. Modules Definition 3.1 (R-modules). Let M be an Abelian group and R be a ring. Then M is an left R-module if there exists a map R M M, (r, m) rm such that (1) 1 m = m; (2) a(bm) = (ab)m; (3) (a + b)m = am + bm, a(m 1 + m 2 ) = am 1 + am 2. A right R-module is defined similarly. Example 3.1. The following are R-modules: Vector space over a field; Any abelian group A is a module over Z; If V is a vector space over F, T : V V a linear map, then V is a F[x]-module, by ( a i x i )v = a i T i (v). If I is an ideal in R, then I and R/I are R-modules. If R = M n n (S), then S n is a left R-module and (S n ) T is a right R-module. Definition 3.2 (Homomorphism of R-modules). Let M, N be R-modules. Then a map φ : M N is a homomorphism of R-modules if it is a group homomorphism and rφ(m) = φ(rm). Theorem 3.1. If A M is a R-submodule, then M/A is an R-module. Remark 3.1. ker(φ), Im(φ) are submodules and the four isomorphism theorems hold.

9 SUMMARY ALGEBRA I Direct Sum. Definition 3.3 (Direct Sum (def 1)). Let M, N be R-modules. Then, M N = {(m, n) m M, n N} is called the direct sum of M and N. The scalar product is defined as follow: r(m, n) = (rm, rn). Definition 3.4 (Direct Sum (def 2)). Let M, N be R-modules. The direct sum of M and N, denoted M N, is a R-module having the following property: Let φ M : M M N and φ N : N M N. If there exists a R-module P such that there exists morphisms ψ M : M P and ψ N : N P, then there exists a unique morphism α : M N P such that ψ M = αφ M and ψ N = αφ N. Such a module exists and is unique. Definition 3.5 (Direct Product). Let M, N be R-modules. The direct product of M and N, denoted M N, is a R-module having the following property: Let φ M : M N M and φ N : M N N. If there exists a R-module P such that there exists morphisms ψ M : P M and ψ N : P N, then there exists a unique morphism α : P M N such that ψ M = φ M α and ψ N = φ N α. Such a module exists and is unique. Theorem 3.2. The definitions of finite direct product and finite direct sum are equivalent Tensor Product of R-modules. Definition 3.6 (Tensor Product). Given M, N two R-modules. Then we define the tensor product between M and N as follow: M R N = { a i m i n i a i R, m i M, n i N}/, where is the following equivalence relation: for all m 1, m 2, m R, n 1, n 2, n N, r R. (m 1 + m 2 ) n = m 1 n + m 2 n, m (n 1 + n 2 ) = m n 1 + m n 2, (rm) n = m (rn) = r(m n), Example 3.2. If V, W are vector spaces, then V W is also a vector space. Moreover, dim(v W ) = dimv dimw. Example 3.3. If X and Y are finite sets, define F(X) = {f : X Y }. It is a vector space. Moreover, F(X) F(Y ) = F(X Y ). Example 3.4. If R is a PID and q = gcd(a, b) = sa + tb, then R/ a R/ b = R/ q. The result is also true in a ring in which q is a linear combination of a and b. Theorem 3.3. (R mod,,, 0, R) is a commutative ring in the sense that it satisfies up to isomorphisms all the axioms of a commutative ring. Example 3.5. Q Z Z n = Q Z... Q Z = Q... Q = Q n. Example 3.6. If φ : R S is a morphism of rings then S R mod, by r = φs. Definition 3.7 (Extension of scalar). Given an R-module M, let M S := S R M. It is a S-module by s(s m) = ss m. M S is called an extension of scalar. Theorem 3.4. If R is a domain, then there exists a field Q(R) containing R.

10 10 LOUIS-PHILIPPE THIBAULT Definition 3.8 (Torsion module). A torsion module over a ring R is a module such that for every m M there exists r R such that r m = 0. Theorem 3.5. If M is a torsion module over a ring R, then M Q(R) := M R Q(R) = 0. Example 3.7. Z 3 Z Q = 0. Definition 3.9 (Multiplicative subset of R \ {0}). If R is an integral domain, then a multiplicative subset S of R \ {0} is a subset S such that (1) 1 S; (2) a, b S ab S. Example 3.8. S = R \ {0} is multiplicative. Example 3.9. If P is a prime ideal, then R P = S is multiplicative. Example S = {2 n } n N is a multiplicative subset of Z. Definition 3.10 (Localisation of R at S). Given a multiplicative subset S R \ {0}, define S 1 R as follow: S 1 R = {r/s r R, s S}/, where r 1 s 1 r 2 s 2 if and only if r 1 s 2 = r 2 s 1. Then S 1 R is called the localization of R at S. If S = R \ {0}, then S 1 R is called the field of fractions of R. Theorem 3.6. The operations on S 1 R are well-defined, and they make S 1 R into a ring in which elements in S are invertible. Also, τ : R S 1 R, r r 1, is an injection. Example If S = {2 n } n N, then S 1 Z is called the set of dyadic integers Structure theorem for finitely generated modules over a PID. Definition 3.11 (Finitely generated modules). A module M over a ring R is finitely generated if there exists g 1,..., g n M such that M = { a i g i a i R} Theorem 3.7. Suppose R is a PID and let a, b R. If the gcd(a, b) = 1, then R/ a R/ b = R/ ab. Theorem 3.8 (Structure theorem for finitely generated modules over a PID). If R is a PID and M is a finitely generated R module, then M n = R k R/ p s i i, where the p i R are prime. Moreover, this decomposition is unique. i=1 Corollary 3.9 (Structure theorem for finitely generated Abelian group). If A is a finitely generated Abelian group, then A n = Z k Z/p s i i. Theorem If M = R k n i=1 R/ ps i i, p is a prime and s N, then (1) dim Q(R) M Q(R) = k; (2) dim R/ p M R/ p = k + {i p i p} ; (3) dim R/ p im(m p s m) R/ p = k + {i p i p, s i > s}. i=1

11 SUMMARY ALGEBRA I 11 Corollary In the structure theorem for finitely generated modules over a PID, we have that k and the set of pairs (p i, s i ) are determined uniquely up to permutation. Corollary If V = F n is a finite dimensional vector space over an algebraically closed field F, and A : V V is a linear map making V into an F[x]-module by xu = Au, then V = F[x] (x λ i ) s. i This is unique up to permutation. Corollary 3.13 (Jordan Canonical form). Over an algebraically closed field F, every square matrix A is conjugate to a block diagonal matrix B B 2 0 B =......, 0 0 B n where each block B i is an s i s i matrix of the form λ i λ.. i B i = , λi λ i for some λ i F. Futhermore, B is unique up to permutation of its blocks Some other useful theorems. Theorem A finite integral domain is a field. Corollary In a finite commutative ring, every prime ideal is maximal. Theorem Let A be a ring. {I I is a prime ideal} = {a A a is nilpotent}. Theorem Suppose that M is a R-module with rank n and that x 1,..., x n is a maximal set of linearly independent elements of M. Then and M/ x 1,..., x n is a torsion module. x 1,..., x n = R n Conversely, if M contains a submodule N isomorphic to R n for some n, and so that M/N is torsion, then the rank of M is n.
