these are all mostly plug and chug. I'll help with the first one.
We may assume WLOG that . Thus, .
The other bit follows from this.
Try the others and get back to us.
Hi,
i need to show which of the following are euclidean domains:
a) C[x] with d(f)=deg(f) (where C[x] = set of polynomials with complex coefficients)
b) set of integers with d(n)=|n|+1
c) ring of integers modulo 5 with d(f)=2deg(f)
d) ring of integers modulo 6 with d(f)=deg(f)
e) Z(w) where w=(1+root(-3))/2, with d(z)=|z|^2
i know that an integral domain is a Euclidean domain if it has a Euclidean function but i dont know how to start off the question.
Thanks!
thanks for ur help. heres what i did for the other parts:
c) d(ab)=2deg(ab), b>=[1] and so
2deg(ab)= 2(deg(a)+deg(b))>=2deg(a)=d(a)
d) the ring of integers modulo 6 is not a field.
d(ab)=deg(ab)=deg(a)+deg(b)>=deg(a)
e) d(w)=|w|^2 = 1/4+3/4=1
(what do i do next?)
thanks
