Hello,
I assume you know that U={e^{it}: 0 <= t < 2(pi)}, f(e^{it})=e^{int}.
Show that U/~={e^{is}-bar: 0<= s < 2(pi)/n} where e^{is}-bar={e^{it}: t=s+2(pi)k/n for some integer k}.
Then, f-bar(e^{is}-bar)=e^{ins} is a well-defined bijection.
Bye.
I'm having trouble with the following problem - I know how to show surjectivity, injectivity and thus bijectivity but I don't know how to apply it to this problem - help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Given U={z∈C : |z| = 1 }, n>0, f:U->U defined by f(z) = z^n and ~ the equivalence relation associated with f.
Show that f defines a bijection f-bar:U/~ -> U.
I don't know how to type mathematical notation so i hope you can understand it ok!
