### Working with groups. Finding the inverse of some $S_9$

I want to compute the inverse of: $\begin{pmatrix} 1&2&3&4&5&6&7&8&9\\3&2&1&6&5&9&4&8&7 \end{pmatrix}$ Sorry about alignment(they are ...

### If Q is a p-Sylow-Group of H there is a p-Sylow-Group P of G with $\phi(P)=Q$ while $\phi:G\rightarrow H$ epimorphism

Let G be a finite group and $\phi: G \rightarrow H$ a group-epimorphism. Proof: If $Q\in Syl_p(H)$ there is a $P\in Syl_p(G)$ with $Q=\phi(P)$.

### Find the inverse of a matrix in $GL(2\,,\, \Bbb Z_{11})$.

What are the necessary steps and reasoning for calculating the following matrix in GL(2,$\Bbb Z_{11}$): $M = \begin{pmatrix} 2&6 \\3&5 \end{pmatrix}$. I found the answer to be ...

### Uniqueness of Inverses in Groups Implies Associativity Holds?

I was checking multiplication tables for groups with 4 elements, to see which tables "passed" the group axioms of closure, associativity, identity and inverses. But then I had a question, so hopefully ...

### Monoid with inversion

Is there a name for monoid with operation $a\mapsto a^{-1}$ conforming the equations $(a^{-1})^{-1}=a$ and $(b\cdot a)^{-1} = a^{-1}\cdot b^{-1}$? (with no requirement that $a^{-1}\cdot a$ would be ...

### Rings | Homomorphisms | Units

Question Show that if $f :R\rightarrow S$ is a homomorphism, and if $a$ is a unit of $R$, then $f(a)$ is a unit of $S$. Show, in fact, that $f(a^{−1}) = f(a)^{−1}$ for any unit $a$ of $R$. Attempt ...

### The inverse of the inverse in a group

In one of my math exercises, I'm being asked to prove that for all $a, b \in G | (a^{-1})^{-1} = a$ with G a group. However, nowhere is stated that it is a commutative group. My first thought was ...
