### Soluble group algebras and centralizers

Let $K$ be field with $\mathrm{char}(K) = p > 0$ and $G$ a finite group such that $KG$ is soluble. Then the $p$-Sylow-subgroup of $G$ is normal and contains the derived group of $G$ and let $H$ be ...

### When does $V/\operatorname{ker}(\phi)\simeq\phi(V)$ imply $V\simeq\operatorname{ker}(\phi)\oplus\phi(V)$?

When does $V/\operatorname{ker}(\phi)\simeq\phi(V)$ imply $V\simeq\operatorname{ker}(\phi)\oplus\phi(V)$? I wrote it down in an imprecise way on purpose. The notation above is the linear algebra one: ...

### What is so special about $a*b^{ -1}$ equivalence?

This equivalent is used often in group theory. For example, using this equivalnce you prove Lagranges theroem and also this equivalence gives you the cosets and other things. This equivalence also ...

### Nilpotent and Invertible elements in commutative ring with 1

Let $R$ be a commutative ring with $1$, $S$ a subring also with $1$. Suppose $R\setminus S$ contains a nilpotent element. Prove that $R\setminus S$ also contains an invertible element. Attempt at ...

### Torsion elements in integer-modules

In a worryingly short amount of time I've managed to forget almost everything I knew about modules, groups, rings e.t.c. I'm using the definition that an element $m$ of a module $M$ over an integral ...

### Noetherian group rings

I'm asking for an example of a finitely generated amenable group $G$ and a field $K$, such that the group ring $K[G]$ is not Noetherian. Is it also possible to find a finitely generated amenable ...

### My question is about the definition of a map called the “reduction map”.

Let $G$ be a group and $N$ normal in $G$. I have read about a map $\alpha : G\rightarrow \frac{G}{N}$ called the reduction map mod $N$. I would love if someone could please explain this to me. Is it ...

### In an infinite cyclic field of non zero units, characteristic $\neq 2$, can an element $-u \neq u$ be expressed as $u^t$ for some finite integer $t$?

For the sake of a proof using contradiction ( to be used somewhere), Lets assume that an infinite cyclic field $F$ of non zero units exists with characteristic $\neq 2$ . In this infinite cyclic field ...

### On the Importance of the Second and Fourth Isomorphism Theorems

I suppose I'd like to focus on the theorems for groups and rings, first of all. In particular, I'd rather not see anything about modules, simply because I don't feel I know enough about them. Anyway, ...

### Subset of $\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{Z}$

I have a past exam question that is as follows: Let $k$ be a fixed integer and $S = \{(a,ka)|a \in \mathbb{Z}\}$ be a subset of $\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{Z}$. Prove that $S$ is a subgroup of ...

### Monotonic Union of Submodule

The theorem is: Suppose $M$ is an $R$-module, $T$ is an index set, and for each $t \in T$, $N_t$ is a submodule of $M$. If $\{N_t\}$ is a monotonic collection, $\cup_{t\in T} N_t$ is a submodule. Is ...

### The group morphism of tye ring

Let $(G,+,\cdot)$ $(H,+,\cdot)$ be rings, we suppose that the unites $(G*,\cdot)$ and $(H*,\cdot)$ form groups respectively, for example, the matrix ring $M(n,\mathbb{R})$. There is a group morphism ...

### Why are groups “abelian” but rings “commutative”?

I have never seen, in any text, a ring whose multiplication is commutative being called an "abelian ring", even though this would make perfect sense, because this term would necessarily refer to ...

### Proving the existence of unity in $R$, where $R$ is the ring of polynomials over complex numbers with $f(0)=0$.

My line of thought is this: we want to prove that there exists some $h(x)\in R$ such that $g(x)h(x)=g(x)$. Therefore $h(x)=1$ for all $x$. But if $h(x)$ is in $R$, then is it not equal to zero at ...

### Classify abelian groups $A$ which are irreducible $End(A)$-modules

Classify abelian groups $A$ which are irreducible $End(A)$-modules. I think i did it for finite abelian group $A$ . A finite abelian group $A$ is irreducible iff order of $A$ a is power of prime. ...

### Is there a way to encode a ring into a group?

Is there a meaningful bijection between tne set of all rings and the set of all groups? Thanks.
I am presented with the following task: Show that if $U$ is the collection of all units in a ring $\langle R, +, \cdot\rangle$ with unity, then $\langle U, \cdot\rangle$ is a group. I am still ...
