Basic Algebra by Anthony W. Knapp

By Anthony W. Knapp

Easy Algebra and complicated Algebra systematically increase ideas and instruments in algebra which are important to each mathematician, even if natural or utilized, aspiring or validated. jointly, the 2 books provide the reader an international view of algebra and its function in arithmetic as an entire. The presentation contains blocks of difficulties that introduce extra issues and functions to technology and engineering to steer extra research. Many examples and hundreds and hundreds of difficulties are incorporated, in addition to a separate 90-page part giving tricks or entire options for many of the issues.

Conversely suppose that (r, s) is a pair with 0 ≤ r < a and 0 ≤ s < b such that GCD(r, a) = GCD(s, b) = 1 is false. Without loss of generality, we may 8 I. Preliminaries about the Integers, Polynomials, and Matrices assume that GCD(r, a) > 1. Choose a prime p dividing both r and a. 9, then the corollary says that a divides n − r. Since p divides a, p divides n − r. Since p divides r, p divides n. Thus GCD(n, ab) > 1. This completes the proof of (∗). For a power pk of a prime p with k > 0, the integers n with 0 ≤ n < pk such that GCD(n, pk ) > 1 are the multiples of p, namely 0, p, 2 p, .

If D is a greatest common divisor of A and B, it follows from (a) and (b) that D divides Rn and that deg D = deg Rn . This proves (c). 2. 5. 16. If A and B are nonzero polynomials with coefficients in F and if P is a prime polynomial such that P divides AB, then P divides A or P divides B. PROOF. 15d produces polynomials S and T such that AS + P T = 1. Multiplication by B gives AB S + P T B = B. Then P divides AB S because it divides AB, and P divides P T B because it divides P. Hence P divides B.
