  1. (30 pts) Draw the subgroup lattice of Z30 -- the integers {0, 1, 2, ... 29} with operation addition mod 30.











  2. (25 pts) List the elements <(1234)(56)>. In other words, list the elements of the cyclic group generated by the permutation:








  3. (15 pts) Find a permutation of degree six in the symmetric group S5 -- the group of permutations of the set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}.



  4. (30 pts) Consider the function Φ from the group Z7 to itself defined by Φ(k) = (7 - k) mod 7. Prove that Φ is an isomorphism; in other words, show that Φ is an automorphism of the group {0, 1, 2, ... 6} with operation addition mod 7.















Bonus (5 pts) For any group G and any element g of G, define a map γ : G -> G such that γ(a) = ga for all elements a of G. True or false: &gamma is an isomorphism of G. Explain how you arrived at your answer.
