Then n = %. , r 2nsmx sin a: 2 ,. 2 A = lim = 7rr hm = irr . 9 For a ^ 0 € R and n G Z + , we define a" t o mean a multiplied by itself n times. Also, a 0 = 1 and a~ n = ( a - 1 ) " . This defines a n for all n G Z. Evidently, for all n G Z, a n + m = a n a m and ( a " ) m = a n m . Prove these laws of exponents as an exercise. We can extend the definitions of exponentiation from Z to Q as follows: If r = ^ € Q, and a > 0, then a r is to mean ( a n ) ^ , where a fractional power means take the appropriate root.

5. Suppose / : G\ —» G2 is a homomorphism. Show that its kernel H is a normal subgroup of G\, f{G\) is a subgroup of G2 and finally that there is an induced isomorphism G\/H —> f{G\). This is called the first isomorphism theorem. 6. Mx is not isomorphic to (R, +), but the subgroup of its positive elements R* is isomorphic to (R, +). Prove this. Hint: The exponential map is a homomorphism (R, +) —» R+. 1 Introduction to Groups and Their Actions 53 7. In a group G denote by Z(G) the things which commute with every element of G.

By substituting these values we get b2 = ikl. So kl has to be a perfect square and since k and / are relatively prime each of them has to be a perfect square. Let k = x2 and I = y2. So our previous equation reads c + a = 2x2 and c — a = 2y2. By solving for c and a we have c = x2 + y2 and a = x2 — y2, and so b = 2xy. 17. -, an) contains all the primes that are involved in all aj's with the minimal exponent. ,an) =p\lpe22 •••pekk where ej = mm(eji:ej2,---ejn). Similarly the prime factorization of the 1cm is given by taking the maximal exponent.
