Section 5.1 Introduction to cyclic groups ¶ permalink. Certain groups and subgroups of groups have particularly nice structures. Definition 5.1.1. A group is cyclic if it is isomorphic to \(\Z_n\) for some \(n\geq 1\text{,}\) or if it is isomorphic to \(\Z\text{.}\) Example 5.1.2. Examples/nonexamples of cyclic groups.
Show that $\Q(\sqrt{2+\sqrt{2}})$ is a cyclic quartic field, that is, it is a Galois extension of degree $4$ with cyclic Galois group. Read solution Click here if solved 38 Add to solve later
