# Topic: Primitive element (field theory)

 Primitive element (field theory) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In mathematics, a primitive element for an extension of fields L/K is an element ζ of L such that If the extension L/K admits a primitive element, then L is either a finite extension of K, in case ζ is an algebraic element of L over K, or L is isomorphic to the field of rational functions over K in one indeterminate, if ζ is a transcendental element of L over K. The primitive element theorem of field theory answers the question of which finite field extensions have primitive elements. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Primitive_element_(field_theory)   (468 words)

 Finite Fields K[x] is a principal ideal domain (an ideal is a subring that is closed under multiplication, a principal ideal is an ideal generated by a single element, and a principal ideal domain is a commutative ring with unity all of whose ideals are principal). We denote the group of all automorphisms of a field L by G(L) and the subgroup of G(L) that fixes all elements of the subfield K of L by G(L/K). Now the primitive elements are to be found among the roots of the irreducible polynomials (they cannot be elements of the prime field). www-math.cudenver.edu /~wcherowi/courses/finflds.html   (3085 words)

 Primitive Polynomial Computation Theory and Algorithm The field is exactly the set of all polynomials of degree 0 to n-1 with the two field operations being addition and multiplication of polynomials modulo g(x) and with modulo p integer arithmetic on the polynomial coefficients. f(x) is a primitive polynomial iff the field element x generates the cyclic group of non-zero field elements of the finite field. A primitive polynomial is the minimal polynomial of a generator, and its roots are conjugates of the generator. www.seanerikoconnor.freeservers.com /Mathematics/AbstractAlgebra/PrimitivePolynomials/theory.html   (3266 words)

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22) This is called finding a primitive element theta of K. If alpha_1,..., alpha_n are the roots of f, we find a primitive element by induction, finding one for Q(theta_i, alpha_{i+1}) where theta_i is a primitive element of Q(alpha_1,..., alpha_i). Note that theta_{i-1} is the final theta you want.) The "theorem on the primitive element" says that a primitive element for Q(theta_i, alpha_{i+1}) is of the form theta_i + k * alpha_{i+1} for almost all rational integers k. A maximal-degree factor of the resultant should be the minimal polynomial of a primitive element of Q(theta_i, alpha_{i+1}), as long as k is generic enough. www.math.niu.edu /~rusin/known-math/95/splitting.fld   (619 words)

 The Graduate Research of Johnny Crypto A primitive element of a Galois field of size p^n is an element whose powers are all different. By definition of a field extension, the field that is being extended is a subfield of the larger field. We want to find primitive elements to use for the coefficients of the polynomials that are used to generate the S-Boxes. www.artfags.org /~jnycrpto/graduate.htm   (495 words)

 Open Questions: Algebraic Number Theory Galois theory is a way to "map" extensions of fields to groups and their subgroups in such a way that most of the interesting details about the extension are reflected in details about the groups, and vice versa. Class field theory has a reputation for being a very difficult subject, and it is. There is a fair bit of abstract conceptual machinery involved even to explain many of the results, and (of course) much more to prove the results. As far as ramification is concerned, the class field K is the maximal abelian extension of k which is unramified except for primes that divide the conductor F. This is an alternative definition of K as the class field of k, so this too is a direct generalization of Hilbert's results. www.openquestions.com /oq-ma018.htm   (19624 words)

 Galois Theory Glossary An element a of a field L is algebraic of degree n over a subfield K if there is an irreducible polynomial f(t) in K[t] of degree n such that f(a) = 0. An extension of fields L/K (this notation does not denote any sort of quotient) is a ring homomorphism K --> L. Such a homomorphism has to be injective, so that K is isomorphic to a subfield of L. It is often convenient to identify K with this subfield. An element a in a field L is a separably algebraic element over a subfield K if there is a polynomial f(t) in K[t] such that f(a) = 0 and f'(a) is nonzero. www.wra1th.plus.com /Galois/gloss.html   (892 words)

 UNDERSTANDING CONFLICT. VIOLENCE, AND WAR: FOUNDATIONS It has led to the development of a field theory of behavior which, I believe, integrates a variety of theoretical and philosophical approaches to war and violence and serves as the phenomenological framework for analyzing whether war is inevitable and what might be done about it. The mathematical structure of the field is more precise but loses much of the rich meaning of the field interpretation and narrows communication to the small number familiar with the particular mathematics (linear algebra) involved. Dynamic fields entail a continuous extension of energy or potentiality throughout a space or region which is the spring or seat of forces, powers, or influences. www.hawaii.edu /powerkills/NOTE10.HTM   (6974 words)

 Quantum Field Theory Quantum field theory can be developed by adopting the path integral formulism as mentioned earlier, or by combining the field equation with canonical quantization as shown in the next sub-topic. A renormalizable theory is one in which the details of a deeper scale are not needed to describe the physics at the present scale, save for a few experimentally measurable parameters (see more in the section about "Renormalizable Theories"). In the Standard model the scalar field is identified as the Higgs field responsiable for the mass of fermions and gauge bosons. universe-review.ca /R15-12-QFT.htm   (11980 words)

 Jo on the web. Galois Fields GF(q) is a field with q elements, also called a finite field because there are a finite number (q) of elements. A Primitive Element of GF(q) is an element ‘a‘such that every field element except zero can be expressed as a power of a. The primitive element of such a field would itself be such a polynomial. nislab.bu.edu /nislab/projects/bchsync/BCH.html   (615 words)

 Document title goes here. We'll show how they can be derived from Galois field theory and derive their sharply peaked autocorrelation properties. When the Galois field elements are written out as a list of polynomial coefficients, the PN sequence is the last column. We don't need to generate the field and do time consuming finite field arithmetic to find a PN sequence, but can use a recursive method instead. www.seanerikoconnor.freeservers.com /CommunicationTheory/PseudoNoiseSequences/MechanicalAutocorrelatorBasedOnPseudoNoiseSequences.html   (600 words)

 The Creative Process in Nature It is a tenet of General Systems theory that certain fundamental processes in nature are isomorphic; that if we can understand one of these processes, we can use this knowledge to help us comprehend others of its kind. The scientific view of this natural creative process is represented in a 4x3 model of the unified field theory and the creation of matter in the Big Bang, while the occult or mythological creation story, with a similar 4x3 pattern, as found in the astrological tradition, is mapped as an overlay. Finally, a numbering system is developed for the elements of counting and a notation system for the operations, relationships, and quantitative concepts of mathematics. www.people.cornell.edu /pages/jag8/shaman.html   (8441 words)

 12F: Field extensions Once upon a time, mathematicians (and others) would spend time on a subject call the "Theory of equations", which was just chock-full of algorithms and the theory of polynomials and their roots. Nowadays, this is the subject of ring theory or numerical analysis, but we chose to keep much of that material here since it often involves a consideration of the splitting fields of that polynomial. An example from Galois theory: calculating the fixed field K(X)^G, for a certain small G. Example of the fixed field under a subgroup of the Galois group (= Sym(3)). www.math.niu.edu /~rusin/known-math/index/12FXX.html   (965 words)

 Sophie Huczynska   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22) Over the years, number theory has expanded to the study of more complicated structures than the set of natural numbers; it is now a vast subject area, with strong links to other branches of mathematics. elements of a finite field which are simultaneously additive and multiplicative generators of the field. The result which establishes the existence of such elements is the Primitive Normal Basis Theorem: it states that, for every prime power q and positive integer n, there exists a primitive normal basis of GF(q^n) over GF(q). homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk /shuczyns   (802 words)

 ABSTRACT ALGEBRA ON LINE: Ideal Theory of Commutative Rings Let D be an integral domain with quotient field F, and let I be an ideal of D that is invertible when considered as a fractional ideal. Let D be an integral domain with quotient field Q, and let F be a finite extension field of Q. If D* is the set of all elements of F that are integral over D, then D* is a Dedekind domain. Let F be a field, and first consider the ring F[x] of polynomials in one indeterminate. www.math.niu.edu /~beachy/aaol/commutative.html   (2296 words)

 DR Donald Mills   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22) My primary interest is in the theory of finite fields and the applications of this theory to communications issues. While I was at West Point, I did work regarding the existence of primitive elements in cubic extensions of finite fields where the elements take on the form aC+b, C being a defining element of the cubic extension and a and b belonging to the underlying field. The paper corresponding to this is entitled "Primitive roots in cubic extensions of finite fields" (joint with G. McNay), and has recently appeared in the proceedings for the Sixth International Conference on Finite Fields and Applications. www.math.siu.edu /mills/default1.htm   (2056 words)
