Nevertheless the fields $\mathbb{C}$ and $\mathbb{D}$ are isomorphic.

comment Show that there exist an irreducible monic polynomial in $GF(p)[X]$ of degree n.
Hi Krish. What you say is equivalent to the question of Jose. How would you prove it without using an irreducible polynomial of the right degree?

comment Let L be a linear operator on a finite-dimensional vector space V over a field F, with p in F[T]. Show that Ker(p(L)) = {0} iff gcd(p, $\mu$) = 1
Yes, you must be careful with factorization arguments, since plugging in $L$ moves things into the ring $F[L]$, which has zero-divisors. So polynomials behave strangely here.

comment Restoring 2D properties from 1D data
The argument works for any linear projection -- so "no" in this case. But you can use non-linear projections, for example you could define $P_i:=x_i^2+y_i^2$. Then you can see whether the data are lying on a circle just because the $P_i$ are all equal in that case. Looks hillarious, but even if you have a bit of noise on the data, it gives you a criterion showing that the data lie near a circle.

comment Ideal of $\mathbb{C}[X,Y]$ contained in infinitely many distinct proper ideals
There is a more direct way of showing what you want to show: consider the ideals $(X-a,Y-b)$, $a,b\in\mathbb{C}$. What does it mean, that $I$ is contained in such an ideal?

comment Direct product of subgroups
What do you mean by "weak" direct product? If $\phi:G\rightarrow H_1\times H_2$ is an isomorphism of groups, then $G$ is the internal direct product of $\phi^{-1}(H_1\times 1)$ and $\phi^{-1}(1\times H_2)$.

There is indeed a mistake / weak point in my argument - I'll correct it in a moment.

The statement that $E$ is singular everywhere seems wrong -- see the example in the extension of my post.
