Dih(8) has at most 8 distinct automorphisms « Project Crazy Project
Dummit and Foote Section 4.4 Automorphisms, Exercise 3 reads as follows:
==================================================
Prove that under any automomorpism of , r has at most two possible images and s has at most 4 possible images. Deduce that |Aut( )| 8
================================================== =
Can anyone help with the above problem? Be grateful for help!
The notation of D&F regarding the construction of is as follows:
Fix a square centred at the origin in an x,y plane and label the vertices from 1 to 4 in a clockweise manner. Let r be the rotation clockwise about the origin through radian. Let s be the reflection about the line of symmetry through vertex 1 and the origin.
Then
= {1, r, , , s, sr, s , s }
