Proof. We apply Proposition 15 to the natural surjection ': Z ! Zm. The subgroups of Z containing ker ' = mZ have the form nZ for some njm in N, and the image is nZm. Corollary 17. For any m, Zm has a unique subgroup of order n, for each n dividing m. Proof. It must be mn Zm, in view of Proposition 14(iii). Exercises 1. Each row (and each column) of the multiplication table of a group is in 1:1 correspondence with the set of elements of the group. 2. , when two groups are isomorphic. Use this program to construct all groups of order 8.

Our present goal is to characterize nite Abelian groups. We shall do this in terms of generators. 1: Theorem 2 (Fundamental theorem of finite Abelian groups). Every nite Abelian group generated by t elements is isomorphic to a direct product of t cyclic subgroups.

Lagrange's theorem shows o(g) divides jGj for every g in G, so clearly exp(G) divides jGj. The second assertion is Cauchy's theorem. Example 4. (i) If G = hgi then exp(G) = jGj, since o(g) = jGj. (ii) If jGj = pt for p prime and exp(G) = jGj; then G = hgi for some g in G (for otherwise each element has order dividing pt 1 ; contradiction). 17 The same argument shows a more general fact: If jGj is a prime power, then there is some g in G for which o(g) = exp(G). Later we shall obtain an analogous result for arbitrary Abelian groups, cf.
