For centuries, the research of elliptic curves has performed a significant position in arithmetic. The previous century particularly has obvious large growth during this learn, from Mordell's theorem in 1922 to the paintings of Wiles and Taylor-Wiles in 1994. still, there stay many primary questions the place we don't even understand what kind of solutions to anticipate.

Example text

Since (1 2)2 = (1), {(1), (1 2)} is a cyclic permutation group of order 2. (ii) Take α = (1 2 3). Since (1 2 3)3 = (1) , and (1 2 3)2 = (1 3 2), {(1), (1 2 3), (1 3 2)} is a cyclic permutation group of order 3. In fact this group is the alternating group of degree 3, A3 . These examples suggest that the cyclic permutation group generated by an r-cycle should have order r. Indeed, if α = (i1 i2 · · · ir ), then αr = (1), but for j < r, αj (i1 ) = ij ̸= i1 , so that αj ̸= (1). Therefore the cyclic permutation group generated by α does have order r.

And in cycle notation, we write α = (1 2 4)(3 5)(6 8 7) . We do not write out 1-cycles, except with the identity permutation, which is written (1) . 3. Disjoint cycles commute with each other. To see this, suppose that α, β, ∈ Sn are disjoint cycles given by α = (i1 · · · ir ) , β = (j1 · · · js ) . Then   α(β(j)) = j = β(α(j)), α(β(ik )) = ik+1 = β(α(ik )),   α(β(jk )) = jk+1 = β(α(jk )), for j ∈ / {i1 , . . , ir , j1 , . . , js }, for 1 ≤ k ≤ r, for 1 ≤ k ≤ s. 30 CHAPTER 2. PERMUTATIONS It is understood that ir+1 := i1 and js+1 := j1 .

B) Do your results generalize to An for any n? Make a conjecture and try to prove it. 1 Definitions and Examples Think of the set of all rotations about the origin in the Euclidean plane. Let α(t) denote the rotation through the angle t counterclockwise. It can be represented by the matrix ) ( cos t − sin t . sin t cos t If we multiply two such rotations together we get another rotation, and the inverse of a rotation is also a rotation. In fact, α(t)α(t′ ) = α(t + t′ ) α(t)−1 = α(−t) . So if we set G = {α(t) | t ∈ R} , we get a collection of real 2 × 2 matrices which has the same algebraic properties as a permutation group.
