Contents & Summary

  • A non-empty set $G$ with binary operation * is called group if the binary operation * is associative and
    • (1) for all $a\in G$, $\exists$ $e\in G$ s.t $a\text{*} e= e\text{*} a =$
    • (2) for each $a\in G$, $\exists$ $a^{-1}\in G$ s.t $a\text{*} a^{-1}=a^{-1}\text{*} a =e$.
  • In a group $G$, there is only one identity element.
  • In a group $G$, the inverse of the element is unique.
  • Every element of $A_n$ is a product of 3-cycles, $n\geq 3$.
