:

Q denotes the field of rational numbers,

Z denotes the ring of ordinary integers,

R denotes the field of real numbers,

C denotes the field of complex numbers,

Fq denotes the finite field with q elements.

If R is any ring then Matn (R) denotes the ring of n × n matrices with coefficients in R.

If R is any ring then GLn (R) denotes the group of invertible n × n matrices in Matn (R).

**If A is any ring then A[t] denotes the ring of polynomials with coefficients in A.

Algebra

Part I

**General Directions: Work all problems in separate bluebooks. Give reasons for your
**

assertions and state precisely any theorems that you quote.

**1. (a) Let F be a field, V a finite-dimensional vector space over F and T : V → V a
**

linear transformation. Suppose that all roots of the characteristic polynomial of T are in

F . Show that with respect to some basis of V the matrix of T is upper triangular.

**(b) Suppose that V is a four dimensional vector space over the field R of real numbers and
**

T : V → V a linear transformation. Show that with respect to some basis of V the matrix

of T has the form

a11 a12 a13 a14

a21 a22 a23 a24

.

0 0 a33 a34

0 0 a43 a44

**2. Classify those finite groups of order 351 = 33 · 13 that have an abelian 3-Sylow subgroup
**

containing no elements of order 9.

3. Let K be the splitting field of the polynomial x6 − 3 = 0 over Q. Compute Gal(K/Q).

**4. (Chinese remainder theorem.) Let A be a commutative ring with unit and let I,
**

J be ideals of A such that A = I + J. Prove that IJ = I ∩ J and that there is a ring

isomorphism

A/IJ ∼= (A/I) × (A/J).

5. A nonabelian group G of order 36 has generators x, y and z subject to the relations:

x3 = y 3 = 1, xy = yx, z 4 = 1, zxz −1 = y, zyz −1 = x2 .

**Find the conjugacy classes of G and compute its character table.

Algebra, Part II

**General Directions: Work all problems in separate bluebooks. Give reasons for your
**

assertions and state precisely any theorems that you quote.

1. Let p be a prime.

**(a) Consider the action of GL(4, Fp ) on the set of two-dimensional vector subspaces of
**

F4p . Let U = {(0, 0, x, y) | x, y ∈ Fp }. Describe the subgroup of g ∈ GL(4, Fp ) such that

gU = U and compute its order.

(b) Compute the number of two dimensional vector subspaces of F4p .

**2. Let p and q be primes with q ≥ p. Prove that there exists a nonabelian group of order
**

pq 2 if and only if p divides one of q − 1, q or q + 1.

**3. If A is a commutative ring with unit and I ⊂ A is a proper ideal, prove that there exists
**

a prime ideal P ⊂ A which is minimal over I. This means that I ⊆ P and if Q is prime

with I ⊆ Q ⊆ P then Q = P . [Hint: Zorn’s Lemma.]

**4. Let p be a prime and let E/F be a cyclic Galois extension of degree p. Let σ be a
**

generator of Gal(E/F ).

**(a) Suppose the characterisic of E and F is p. Show that there exists α ∈ E such that
**

α∈/ F but σ(α) − α ∈ F .

**(b) Show that if the characteristic of E and F is not p then σ(α) − α ∈ F if and only if
**

α ∈ F.

**Hint for both parts: It may help to think of E as a vector space over F , and σ as a
**

linear transformation.

**5. Let R be a commutative ring containing C, and let M be a simple R-module. (Recall
**

that this means that M has no submodules except {0} and M itself.) Suppose that

dimC (M ) < ∞.

**(a) Prove that if r ∈ R there exists α ∈ C such that rm = αm for all m ∈ M . (Remark:
**

If you use some version of Schur’s Lemma, you must prove it.)

(b) Prove that dimC (M ) = 1.
