Problem 231

Show that $\Q(\sqrt{2+\sqrt{2}})$ is a cyclic quartic field, that is, it is a Galois extension of degree $4$ with cyclic Galois group.

Problem 230

Let $\Q$ be the field of rational numbers.

(a) Is the polynomial $f(x)=x^2-2$ separable over $\Q$?

(b) Find the Galois group of $f(x)$ over $\Q$.

Problem 110

Let $p \in \Z$ be a prime number.

Then describe the elements of the Galois group of the polynomial $x^p-2$.
