The most function of those lectures is first to in brief survey the elemental con­ nection among the illustration conception of the symmetric staff Sn and the idea of symmetric features and moment to teach how combinatorial tools that come up clearly within the conception of symmetric services result in effective algorithms to precise a number of prod­ ucts of representations of Sn by way of sums of irreducible representations.

In fact, H = 1. we can show that n He9t Hnormal For, suppose that a belongs to every normal subgroup of G(K/k) which belongs to 91. If a~ 1 there is an a E K such that a(a) ~ a. Let L be a finite normal extension of k in K which contains a. There is such an extension by Theorem 19, Chapter 1. Then G(K/L) E 91 and is a normal subgroup of G(K/k) but a¢ G(K/L). Hence we must have a= 1. Now we shall give the example promised in Section 10. This example will illustrate two important facts. First, there may be relatively few subgroups of G(K/k) which are closed and, second, there may be subgroups of finite index in G(K/ k) which are not closed.

Proof We see from §1, no. 2 of Bourbaki's Chapter III that we must show that 91 is a filter base and that if HE 9l and a E G then aH a 1 E 91. It is certainly true that 91 is not empty and that no element of 91 is the empty set. If, for i = 1, 2, Hi = G(K/Fi) E 91 then 60 \ 11. The Krull topology Let K be a Galois extension of k and let G = G(K/k). Let 91 be the family of all subgroups G(K/F) of G where k £ F £ K and [F: k] is finite. 21. There is a topology on G which is compatible with the group structure of G and which has 91 as a fundamental system of neighborhoods of the identity.

Choose once and for all a real number dwith 0 < d < 1. lfj(x)fg(x) is an arbitrary nonzero element of k(x) we set for all positive integers t. If we let t ,. oo we obtain lml <; 1 for all positive m E J, and so for all m E J. It then follows from the lemma that I I is nonArchimedean. Let I= {mE J llml < 1}. lal t = (absolute value of n)c. + + + 1/t for some positive real number c. Thus for all n E J or 1 nllt 1 lml ~ lnl(log m) j(log n) Now lett be a positive integer and replace m by mt. This gives 1 log n By interchanging the roles of m and n we see that for all integers m and n which are greater than 1, JmJlf(log m) = JnJlf(log n) = ec i=O < lnl(log m')f(lOg n) • for all positive integers t.
