The Daily Questions of Week 7

The following Daily Questions were asked this week.

Tuesday, May 16

First Question

True or False: If $F\subseteq E$ is a Galois field extension, $F\subseteq F’$ is finite field extension, and $E’=EF’$ is the composite field, then the field extension $F’\subseteq E’$ is Galois.

Reveal Answer

Answer

True. Moreover, $\operatorname{Gal}_{F’}(E’)\cong \operatorname{Gal}_{E\cap F’}(E)$.

Second Question

Suppose $F\subseteq E_1$ and $F\subseteq E_2$ are both Galois field extensions. Which of the following field extensions below are Galois?

  1. $F\subseteq E_1E_2$
  2. $F\subseteq E_1\cap E_2$
  3. $E_1\subseteq E_1E_2$
  4. $E_2\subseteq E_1E_2$
  5. $E_1\cap E_2 \subseteq E_1E2$

Reveal Answer

Answer

All of them.

Reveal Answer

Answer

False. Every finite separable extension is simple.

Second Question
