Sample text

Solutions to Chapter 1 Let G be partitioned by the set {H X a I a EA} of cosets of H, and let H be partitioned by the set {KY{3 I f3 E B} of cosets of K. Suppose that g E G. Then we have g E HX a for some a E A and so g = hX a for some (unique) h E H. But h E KY{3 for some f3 E B and so we have that g = kY{3x a for some k E K. Thus we see that every element of G belongs to a coset K Y{3x a for some f3 E B and some a E A. The result now follows from the fact that if KY{3x a = KY{3'x a , then, since the left hand side is contained in the coset H X a and the right hand side is contained in the coset H X a ', we have necessarily X a = X a ', which gives KY{3 = Kyf3' and hence Y{3 = Y{3" Now observe that (HnK)x = HxnKx for all subgroups Hand K of G.
