On a Galois connection between the subfield lattice and the multiplicative subgroup lattice

John K. McVey

Vol. 264 (2013), No. 1, 213–219
Abstract

Given finite fields F < E, we present a collection of subgroups C E× and establish, to each C, a Galois connection between the intermediate field lattice = {LF L E} and C’s subgroup lattice. Our main result is that, in all but an extremely limited and completely determined family, the closed subset of is itself, establishing a natural bijection between and the lattice {L CL ∈ℰ}. As an application, we use this bijection to calculate the set of degrees for the complex-valued irreducible representations of the split extension C Gal(E∕F).
