the text book Herstein 2 AN EXAMPLE FOR THE FIRST ISOMORPHISM THEOREM 2 2 An example for the First Isomorphism Theorem Let S c E C l 0 1 Since labl aHbl for all 011 6 C S is a multiplciative subgroup of Ctt7 De ne gt 3 R7 H 57 7 T H 62 Then 1 clearly is an onto isomorphsim Moreover Mr 1 if an only if r is an integer So ker gt Z and the First lsomorphism Theorem tells us Rng 3 Group Action De

this is indeed an action Let 97175 6 G Then 9h 8 9h89h 1 ghsh lg 1 9h8h 1g 1 9 h 8 and esese 1esee Conjugation plays an important role in Group Theory For conVience we de ne 9h ghgil Note that we established the important formula 3 GROUP ACTION 3 ls right multiplication 98Sg an action ghssghandghsgshshg So we see that right multiplication is an action if and only if G is aloelian7 that is if and only if right multiplcation is the same as left multiplication But here is a little trick how to turn right multiplcation into an action which I will call twisted right multiplication De ne gssgil Then 9h 8 8gh 1 8h 19 18h 19 1 h 89 1 9 h 8 and so twisted right multiplication is an action For a further example let G be a group and H any subgroup of G The action of G by left multiplication on GH is de ned as g 8H 98W for all 95 6 G Let T 5H Then 9T98H98hlhEHg8h l hEHgtlt TgT In particular 7 7 is well de ned Also gh T ghT ghT 9 hT and e T T so this is indeed an action Let G be acting on the set S De ne I G a SymS by WW8 g 8 ls this well de ned That is7 is ltIgtg a bijection It is since ltIgtg 1 is its inverse ltIgtg 1o lt1gt98 9 1 9 s 9 1 98 6 8 8 So ltIgtg 1o ltIgtg ids Similarly ltIgtg o ltIgtg 1 ids and so ltIgtg E SymS Note that I is a homomorphism 3 GROUP ACTION 4 190 WWW lt1gt9 1gth8 9 h 8 9h 8 ltIgt9h8 Hence ltIgtg o ltIgth gh Conversely suppose that G is a group7 S is a set and I G a SymS is a homomor phism De ne g s ltIgtgs for all g E G and s E S Let us verify that this is an action of G on S g h 8 lt1gt9 1gth8lt1gt90 WWW lt1gt9h89h 8 and e gtk s es id5s 5 So we see that there is a one to one correpondence between the action of a group G on a set S and homomorphisms from G to Sym Let G be acting on the set S and let I G a SymS be the corresponding homo morphism Let G5 ltIgtG Let 73S be the set of all subsets of S7 the power set of G For a subset T of S so T E 73S and g E G de ne ggtkTggtktlt T It is readily veri ed that this de nes an action of G on 73S We de ne 00T gEGlgttVt T and N0T gEGlgTT Note that N0T C39GT7 where on the right hand side G is Viewd as acting on 73S Proposition 32 Centralizers and Normalizers Let G be acting on a set S and let T Q S 3 GROUP ACTION 5 Proof a Clearly e t t and so e E 00T Let gh E 00T and t E T Then ghtght gttand sotE 00T Alsog 1tg 1gt g lgt e t t Hence 9 1 E 00T and 00T is indeed a subgroup of G b Follows from a since NaT 00T c and d Since 9 t E for all g E N0T we obatin a well de ned map NCTXTEgtT7 gtgtgt Clearly this is an action for N0T on T Let I N0T a SymT be the corresponding homomorphism Then 19 idT if and only ifgt t for all t E T and so CG T ker 11 So c holds The second statement in d now follows from the First lsomorphism Theorem e follows form c and f from d applied with T S Note here that N0S SD Some warning about the notation Na T and 00T It assumes that we do have a xed action of G on S in mind To avoid confusion we will sometimes write NgT7 9 for NC T to indicate underlying action Recall that for G acting on G we de ned three different actions Left Multiplication Twisted right multiplication and conjugation If T Q G we will reserve the symbols N0T and 00T for the action of G on G by conjugation If the action is by left multiplication we use NCT7 LM and C39GT7 LM Let T be a non empty subset of G We claim that C39GT7 LM e lndeed let t E G and g E C39GT7 LM Then gt t and so 9 e Computing H NHT7 LM is a little bit more complicated Note that H g G Also ht E T for all t E T So Ht Q T and we see that H is the largest subgroup of G so that T is the union of right cosets of H In particular if T is a subgroup of G7 NCT7 LM T Let G be acting on S and st E G De ne 5 Et mod G ift gs for someg E G We claim that this is an equivalence relation lndeed s e s and so E mod G is re exive lf tgs then s es g lgs g 1gs g lsst and E mod G is symmetric Finally ifs hr and t 95 then t 9 hr ghr and so E mod G is transitive You might have noticed the similarity in this argument with equivalence realation we used to de ne cosets lndeed7 the cosets are just the specail case of a subgroup H acting by left multiplication on G The equivalence classes are E mod G are called the orbits of G on S The orbit of G on S containg sis G s 9 s l g E G Note that if T is on orbit for G on S then N0T G and G acts on T The set of orbits for G on S is denotes by orbGS We say that G acts transitively on S if G has exactly one orbit on G Lemma 33 transitive Let G be acting on the set S The the following are equivalent a G acts tranisitiuely on S b For all st E T there exists 9 E G with t g gtk s c There exists 5 E T such that for allt E S there exists 9 E G with t g gtk s 3 GROUP ACTION 6 Proof a gt b Let 572 E S Since G has only one orbit on S7 5 E 25 Clearly b implies Finally c implies that all elements of S are in the same orbits as 5 So c implies a D Example Let H g G Then the action of G on GH is transitive lndeed gH g H and so all cosets are in the same orbit as H If G acts on the set G7 we will call S an G set Let S and T be G sets A G morphism gtSHTisafunctionzjSHTsothat gtgs g gts forallge GandsES A G isomorphism is a G morphism which is a bijection S and T are called G isomorphic if there exists a G isomorphism j S a G Lemma 34 orbits and isomorphisms Let 1 S a T be an isomomhism of G sets LetA Q S and B Proof a Let g E G and t E T and put 5 gt 1t Then gtg s g gts g t and so 9 1405 gt71g 25 So a holds b Let g E NaA and b E B Let a 141 Then 9 a E A and applying 1 to both sides 9 gtk b E B So N0A N0B The other inequality follows from a and symmetry c Let g E 00A and b E B Let a 141 Then 9 a a and applying 1 to both sides 9 b I So CO A CaB The other inequality follows from a and symmetry d If A is an orbit for G then A Ga for some a E G Applying 1 we get B G gta and so B is an orbit for G on S Symmetry completes the proof of e By b B is an N0A set and e is now obvious f If A is an orbit G N0A So f follows from e D As an example let S G with G acting by left multiplcation and let T G with G acting by conjunjugation Are these to action isomomorphic Note that G acts transitively on S But geg 1 g for all g in G and so 5 is an orbit for G on S So S and T are not ismomorphic unless G e The next lemma determines all transitive action of G up to isomorphism Proposition 35 classifying transitive actions 3 GROUP ACTION 7 a Let G be acting transitiuely on the set S Lets E S and put H Cas Then the map ltjgtGHgtS7 gHgtggtks is a well de ned isomorphsim of G sets b Let H and K be subgroups of G Then GH and GK are isomorphic as G sets if and only H and K are conjugate in G that is H 9K for some 9 E G Proof a Let h EH Then hs s and so gh s g hs gs So I is well de ned Next we verify that j is a G morphism Let g E G and kH E GH Then gt9 MU gt9kH 910 s 9 lM 8 g gtkH Next let t E S Since G is transitive t g s for some 9 E G Thus gtgH t and j is onto Now suppose that gtgH Then 9 s k s7 k lg s s and fly 6 H Thus gH kH and j is one to one b We will rst compute CG a 9K gK if and only if agK gK Multiplying the last equation by g 1 from the right7 we get a E CagK if and only if a9K 9K Thus 009K 9K Suppose now that H and K are conjugate in K Then H 9K for some 9 E G By the preceeding calculation H 00gK and so by a GH and GK are isomorphic as G sets Suppose now that j GHtoGK is a G isomorphism Then gtH gK for some 9 E G By 34 00H 00gK and thus H 9K So b is proved D De nition 36 Let G be acting on the set S Then a set of representaiues for the orbits of G on S is a subset calR ofS such thatR contains exactly one element from each orbit for G on S Proposition 37 Orbit Equation Let G be acting on the set S and let R be a set of representaiues for the orbits of G on S Then lSl Z lOlZlGCGT OeorbSG r673 Proof Since S is the disjoint union of its orbits7 the rst equation holds For each orbit O for G on S there exists a unique r E R with r E R By 35 O E GCGT and so 0 lGCGr Thus also the second equation For the special case that G is acting on G by conjugation7 the orbit equation is called the class equation 4 S YLOW S THEOREM 8 Proposition 38 Class Equation Let G be a group and R a set of representatives for the conjugacy classes of G Then W ZGCGW ZG Z GCaT r673 reRZG Proof The rst follows from 37 Let g E ZG Then Cg Since R contains an element from the orbit Cg we get 9 E R and so ZG Q R Also 00g G and hence GCGg 1 Thus 2 90060 WWW r6ZG and the second equation follows from the rst D Lemma 39 Products of subgroups Let A and B be subgroups of G a AB is a subgroup ofG if and only if AB BA b IfA N0B then AB is a subgroup of G a Suppose AB is a subgroup of G Then AB BA 1 B lA l BA Suppose next that AB BA Then e ee 6 AB7 ABAB ABAA AABB AABB AB and AB 1 B lA l BA AB So AB is a subgroup of G b If A N0B then aB Ba for all a E A Thus AB BA and AB is a subgroup by a D 4 Sylow s Theorem Let n be a positive integer and p a prime Then np is the p part of n7 that is the largerst power dividing n So np pk for non negative integer k pk diVides n but pk1 does not Lemma 41 n Choose pk Let n and k be positiue integer and p a prime Suppose that pk diuz39des n Then 12 Proof Since kil p 71 i 1 71 7 2 pk pk H pk 72 it suffices to show that the p parts of nit and pk it are identical for all 1 g i lt pk 71 Let 0 lt i lt pk Then pk diVides n and pk and so diVides neither nit nor pkii So the p parts of nit and pkii are at most pk l The lemma now follows since nii7 pkii m71pk D 4 S YLOW S THEOREM 9 De nition 42 An automorphism of a group G is an isomorphism from G to G AutG denotes the set of all

f This follows from d and the First lsomorphism Theorem A D 4 SYLOW S THEOREM 10 Theorem 44 Existence of Sylow Subgroups Let G be a nite group p a prime and h a positive integer such that pk divides Then there exists a subgroup S of G with W pk Note that G acts via left multiplication on PpkG7 the set of all subsets of G of size pk Let R be a set of representatives for the orbits of G on 73 By the orbit equation7 lekGl Z lGCGR7LMl R672 Let lGlp kaT By 41 the p part of letGl by 19 Hence there exists R E R so that pT1 does not divide lGGGRLMl Let S 00RLM Then pT1 does not divide and so pk divides S Let r E R Then Sr Q R Since lRl pk we conclude that lSl pk Thus 5 pk a a The maximal p subgroups of a group G are called Sylow p subgroups of G SylpG denotes the set of all Sylow p subgroups of G Theorem 45 Sylow7s Theorem Let G be a nite group of oder n pkm where k and m are positive integers p is a prime andp does not divide m SylpG 75 0 a b Let S g G Then S is Sylow p subgroup of G if and only if lSl pk c Every p subgroup of G is contained in a Sylow p subgroup of G d Any two Sylow p subgroups of G are conjugate in G e The number of Sylow p subgroups of G divides m and is congruent to 1 mod p f Let S E SylpG Then lGNGSl lSylpGl Proof By Lagrange Theorem7 every p subgroup of G has order dividing pk So any subgroup of order pk is a maximal p subgroup This proves the rst part of Also by 447 a holds Since G is nite7 the set of p subgroups containing a given p subgroup of G has a maximal element Hence any p subgroup lies in a maximal p subgroup and c holds We will now show that G acts on SylpG by conjugation Let g E G and S E SylpG Then lgSl lSl and thus 9S is a p subgroup of G Let T be a p subgroup of G with 9S g T Then S g 971T and so by maximality of S7 S 971T and 9S T Thus 9S is indeed a maximal p subgoup of G Let S7 T E SylpG and consider the orbit ST of S on SylpG If S N5T7 then ST is a subgroup of order Emil So ST is a p group and the maximalities of S and T imply S ST S Thus S has a unique orbit of length 1 on SylpG7 namely lfS 7 N5T 4 SYLOW S THEOREM 11 then p divides SN5T So all other orbits have length divisible by p Thus e holds Let 9 be an orbit for G on SylpG Let S E 9 Then 9 is a union of S orbits and so 0 E 1 mod p Suppose that O 7 SylpG and pick S E SylpG 9 Then all orbits of S on 9 have length diVisble by p a contradiction to pf Hence SylpG that is d holds By 44 G has a Sylow p subgroup of order pk By d all Sylow p subgroups have order pk and so also the second direction in b holds Finally f follows from c and 35 D Example Let G be a nite group of order 21 Then the number of Sylow 7 subgroups has has to diVide 3 and is 1 mod 7 So G has exactly one Sylow 7 subgroup S7 and S7 31 G The number 53 of Sylow 7 subgroups diVides 7 and is 1 mod 3 Hence 53 1 or 53 7 Suppose rst that 53 1 Then G has a unique Sylow 3 subgroup S3 S7 S3 1 and so G S7S3 Also S7 S3 S7 S3 1 Hence G is abelian Suppose next that 53 7 Let S3 6 Syl3G Then GNGS3 7 and so N0S3 S3 Since A O B 1 for distinct Sylow 3 subgroup of order we get that 00Sy13G NGA n A 1 AeSy13G AeSy13G Hence G is isomorphic to the image of G in SymSy13G Sym7 So lets us assume that G SymZ7Z Since Sym7 has a unique class of elements of order 7 namely the seven cycles we may assume that S7 0123456 Also since S3 has a unique xed point on Sy137 we may assume that S3 xes 0 and S3 abedef Let s 0123456 and t abedef Then 15 6 S7 and so 15 5139 for some 1 g i g 6 Then 5 tas 5i3 and so i3 E1 mod 7 Thus i 124 lfi 1 s and t commute and s E Nat N0S3 a contradiction Thus i 2 or 4 Replacing t by t 1 we may assume that i 2 So ts sZt Let 1 g k g 7 Then tsk 521 and 5130 k Thus 750 75820 82kt0 823740 8230 2k Hence t 241365 To summarize If G is a group of order 21 with seven Sylow 3 subgroups then G E st SymZ7Z where skgtk1andtkgt2k Corollary 46 Cauchy Let G be a nite group dndp a prime dividing the order of G Then G has an element of order p 4 SYLOW S THEOREM 12 Proof By 44 ther exists a subgroup S of order p in G Let 1 7 s E S Then 1 7 151 and lsl divides lSl p So 5 has order p D Lemma 47 normal sylow psubgroups Let G be a nite group andp a prime Then the following are equivalent a G has a unique Sylow p subgroup b All Sylow p subgroups of G are normal in G c At least one Sylow p subgroup of G is normal in G d t E G l ltl pk for some k E N is a subgroup of G Proof agt 1 Let S E SylpG and g E G Then also 9S is a Sylow p subgroup of G and hence by assumption S 9S Thus S is normal in G bgt c Obvious C a Let S be a normal p subgroup and R any p subgroup By Sylow s theorem7 R 9S for some 9 E G Since S is normal in G we get R S and S is the unique Sylow p subgroup of G To remains to show that a and d are equivalent Let T t E G l ltl pk for some k E N By Lagrange s theorem S Q T for all S E SylpG a d Suppose S is the unique Sylow p subgroup of G Let t E T Then t is a p subgroup of G and so by Sylow s Theorem contained in some Sylow p subgroup of G Thus t E S and so S T d a Suppose T is a subgroup of G Let q be a prime with p 7 1 By de nition of T7 no element in T has order q Thus by 46 q does not diVide T Hence T is a p group Let S E SylpG Since S Q T7 the maximality of T implies S T So T is the unique Sylow p subgroup of G D Lemma 48 Image in SymSylG LetG be a nite group p aprime N CaSylpG and T SylpG Then a N SeSy1pGNGS39 b T 31 G and T is the

Theorem we compute lSNNl sNm Sl lSTl lGNlp W W 1 So 5NN e SylpGN Let 5 e SylpG with 5N 5N Then 5 5N NG5 and so 5 55 5 We conclue that the map in question is one one Now let AN E SylpGN and choose S E SylpA Since lAlp lGlp S E SylpG By what we proved lSNNl lGNlp lANl and so SNN AN So the map is also onto e By d 517 lSylpGNl and so 517 diVides lGNl Also GN is isomorphic to subgroup of SymSylpG E Symsp So by Lagrange lGNl diVides 5171 D De nition 49 A non tiuial group is called simple if it has no poper normal subgroups Lemma 410 Simple abelian groups Let G be a simple group If G is a abelian or a nite p group then G ZpZ for some prime p Proof If G is a nite p group then by a a homework problem ZG 7 e Since ZG is a normal subgroup of G and G is simple we conclude G ZG So G is abelian We may assume from now on that G is abelian Then every subgroup of G is normal and thus G has no proper subgroups Thus G g for all e 7 g E G In particular G E ZnZ for some n E N lfm 6 2 diVides n and 17 m 7 n then mZnZ is a proper subgroup of ZnZ Thus n is a prime D Lemma 411 The number of sylow p subgroups for simple groups LetG be a non cyclic simple group and p a prime diuisor of Then G is

not an inner automorphism Let F be a Sylow 5 subgroup of G and e 34 9 E G Then G is a ve cycle and so 9 dies not x 1 Hence GF1 e and lg1 lg E 5 Thus ther exists a unique 9 E F with 91 2 Then 9 12a7b76 with 171976 345 Also F 57979279727971 and there exists a unqie Hence there exists 24 elements of order 5 in K In particular7 l Sy15Kl 6 The following tables list the six Sylow 5 subgroups explicitly

162435 23gt12345 13245 6 F5 and 23gt12354 13254 6 F3 Since ltIgt12 is a triple 2 cycle and ltIgt12 and ltIgt23 are conjugate also ltIgt23 is a triple 2 cycle Thus lt1gt23152346 34gt12345 12435 6 F3
