Symbolic Reasoning allied to boring A lgebra. the executive examples of such structures are Hamilton sQ uaternions, Grassmann sC alculus of Extension and Boole sS ymbolic good judgment. Such algebras have an intrinsic price for separate special research; they are also precious of a comparative learn, for the sake of the sunshine thereby thrown at the basic concept of symbolic reasoning, and on algebraic symbolism particularly.

Thus (F'(a),p") E 6 and is strictly greater than (F', p'), which is a contradiction. Thus we do have F' = K and, by Proposition 1, p' is a k-automorphism of K, and so is the desired T. II THEOREM 20. The field K is a Galois extension of k, that is, k is the fixed field of G(K/k ). Proof Let a be an element of the fixed field of G(K/k). As in the proof of Proposition 1 there is a finite normal extension L of k with k s; L s; K and a E L. Let a E G(L/k). By Proposition 2 there is an element T E G(K/k) such that T(b) = a(b) for all bEL.

Show that A' is, in a natural way, a (G/H)-module. , C 2(G,A) by (A/)(a,T) = f(aH,TH). Show that A is a homomorphism which maps Z 2(G/H,A') into Z 2(G,A) and B 2(G/H,A') into B 2(G,A) and so induces a homomorphism A*: H 2(G/H,A') ... H 2(G,A). 37. Let K be a finite Galois extension of k, G = G(K/k), F a normal I 1"-J I Section 7 42. : k*~ are finite. Show that the same hold for H1H2 and H1 n H2 and thatKH 1 H, KH KH and KH 1 ,.... H, = KH 1 n KH,· 4J. Let K be a cyclic Kummer extension of the field k of Theorem ~4.

H, = KH 1 n KH,· 4J. Let K be a cyclic Kummer extension of the field k of Theorem ~4. Show that if K = KH and if ak*" is a generator of H/k*" then K = k(\Y a). Section 8 44. Fill in the details of the proof of Theorem 15. 45. Let k be a quasi-finite field of characteristic p. Show that (k+: &k+) = P· Sections 10, 11, and 12 46 Let K be a Galois extension of k and let k £ L £ K. Show that the topoiogy induced on G(K/L) by the Krull topology of G(K/k) is the Krull . topology of G(K/L). 47. Let K be a Galois extension of k.
