Prove that if a set of "positive" elements is suitably chosen, D is an ordered domain. Prove in detail that any subdomain of an ordered domain is an ordered domain. Let R be any commutative ring which contains a subset of "positive" elements satisfying the addition, multiplication, and trichotomy laws. Prove that R is an ordered domain. Well-Ordering Principle A subset S of an ordered domain such as the real number system is called well-ordered if each nonempty subset of S contains a smallest member. In terms of this concept, one can formulate an important property of the integers, not characteristically algebraic and not shared by other number systems.

Prove that R is an ordered domain. Well-Ordering Principle A subset S of an ordered domain such as the real number system is called well-ordered if each nonempty subset of S contains a smallest member. In terms of this concept, one can formulate an important property of the integers, not characteristically algebraic and not shared by other number systems.

This is the Well-ordering principle. The positive integers are well-ordered. For instance, the least positive even integer is 2. To illustrate the force of this principle, we prove Theorem 3. There is no integer between 0 and 1. This is immediately clear by a glance at the natural order of the integers, but we wish to show that this fact can also be proved from our Here and subsequently exercises of greater difficulty are starred.

We give an indirect proof. Thus m 2 is another integer in the set C, smaller than the supposedly minimum element m of C. This contradiction establishes Theorem 3. Theorem 4. But m o;i. This contradiction establishes the theorem. Exercises 1. Show that for any integer a, a - 1 is the greatest integer less than a. Which of the following sets are well-ordered: a all odd positive integers, b all even negative integers, c all integers greater than -7, d all odd integers greater than ? Prove that any subset of a well-ordered set is well-ordered.

Show that any non empty set S of integers having a lower bound has a least element. Finite Induction; Laws of Exponents We have now formulated a complete list of basic properties for the integers in terms of addition, multiplication, and order.

Henceforth we assume that the integers form an ordered integral domain Z in which the positive elements are well-ordered.

Every other mathematical property of the integers can be proved, by strictly logical processes, from those assumed. In particular, we can deduce the extremely important. Let there be associated with each positive integer n a proposition P n which is either true or false.

To deduce this principle from the well-ordering assumption, simply observe that the set of those positive integers k for which P k is true satisfies the hypotheses and hence the conclusion of Theorem 4.

The metnod of proof by induction will now be used to prove various laws valid in any commutative ring.

## MACLANE BIRKHOFF ALGEBRA PDF The rejuvenation of algebra by the systematic use of the postulational method and the ideas and point of view of abstract group theory has been one of the crowning achievements of twentieth century mathematics. We also hope it will give a solid introduction to this fascinating and mackane growing subject, to those students interested in modern algebra for its own sake. It is a unified birkgoff comprehensive introduction to modern algebra. This is when students should come face-to-face with having to understand universality, or else. I do not believe students are significantly less capable today than they were several decades ago, as you seem to suggest. After explaining the conceptual content nirkhoff the classical theory of equations, our book tried to bring out the connections of newer algebraic concepts with geometry and analysis, connections that had indeed inspired many of these concepts in the first place. Chapter 11 includes a completely revised introduction to Boolean algebra and lattice theory.

## Garrett Birkhoff The authors are quick to indicate applications and careful to motivate and illustrate abstractions. This is one of the primary reasons an undergraduate course ought to supplement this book. This exposition of the elements of modern algebra has been planned with great skill, and the plan has been carried through very successfully. Modern algebra also enables one to reinterpret the results of classical algebra, giving them far greater unity and generality. Throughout the study of matrices and quadratic forms the geometric point of view is emphasized. I also think there should probably be more commutative algebra.
