The 1st identify within the Elite devices sequence to house an American bombardment team, this identify makes a speciality of the 303rd BG, dubbed the 'Hells Angels.' one of many first actual B-17 devices assigned to the newly created 8th Air strength in England in September 1942, the 303rd was once within the forefront of the sunlight bombing crusade via to VE-Day. presented a extraordinary Unit quotation in January 1944, the 303rd additionally had of its aircrewmen awarded with the Medal of Honor, Americas final army ornament. Brian O Neill brings the group's vibrant strive against historical past to lifestyles with a mixture of first-hand money owed, uncooked facts and concise venture narrative.

It follows that exactly one of the following two statements is true. • , x n- l are · t'Inc, t G -- {o dIS x ,xI , ... , x n-l} an d x n -- 1. (ii) IGI is infinite, in which case the elements xi, = n 00, i E Z are distinct. Proof Suppose that there are i, j E Z with i < j and xi = x j (if there are no such i and j we are in case (ii)). Among all such i and j choose a pair with j - i = n as small as possible. Now Xi = x j so 1 = X-iX i = x-ix j = xn. Moreover, Xo, Xl, ... , x n - 1 must be distinct otherwise we would violate the choice of n.

E Inl. 44 The additive group Q of rational numbers is not finitely generated. Proof Suppose (for contradiction) that Q is generated by finitely many rational numbers qi where i = 1,2, ... m. Choose a positive integer n such that nqi E Z for every i. Let A = (lin). Now qi E A for every i, so Q ~ A ~ Q. We conclude that Q = A but 1/2n f/. A so this is absurd. The proof is complete. 45 Suppose that G = (x) is a cyclic group. (i) If G is infinite, then G has exactly one subgroup of index n for each n E N, and exactly one subgroup of infinite index.

14 Suppose that G is a group containing subgroups Hand K. Show that HuK = (H,K) if and only if HnK E {H,K}. 15 Show that there is a group G containing subgroups H, K, L such that HuKuL = (H,K,L) but HnKnL ¢ {H,K,L}. 5 Finite Generation A group G is said to be finitely generated if there is a finite set X such that G = (X). Every finitely generated group is countable, since there are only finitely many elements of G which are expressible using a word of length n in the generators and their inverses, and the countable union of finite sets is countable.
