(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The question is:

Let g: R --> T be a homomorphism. If R is a Field, show that g is either 1-1 or the zero mapping

So I used a direct proof with cases.

Assume g(a) = g(b)

since the image (g) is a subring, it is closed under subtraction, then g(a) - g(b)= 0 [itex]\in[/itex] img (g)

now g(a)-g(b) = g(a-b) = 0

i) if a [itex]\neq[/itex] b, then g the zero mapping

ii) if a = b, then g is one to one.

what do you think?

thanks
