## What is a Group? Our Group The Group Structure

A group is a set of elements that hold true under the following four Ax- Our group is abelian. When a group is abelian it means that applying the
ioms: Closure, Associative, Identity, and Inverse. An Abelian group is a
group in which all elements are commutative, meaning one element under

e.g., ab = ba. Our group is not cyclic. A group is cyclic when there is an
modulo of another element will result in the same thing from the second G= element in the group that generates the whole group. Since none of the

ample of a group, let’s take D4 for example. All of the elements in D4 are The elements of G are: The order of the an element a is the smallest positive integer such that

D4 is closed. Then, to prove the associative axiom, we can notice that if we 2, |D| = 4, |D2| = 2, |D3| = 4, |U 2D| = 4, |U 2D2| = 2, |U 2D3| = 4. There

the end results would be the same. So, by definition of associative axiom,
the set is Associative. Next, to solve for the identity axiom, we can note
that by looking at the cayley table the only element in which doesn’t affect Subgroup Diagram
the other elements is R0. This element when under modulo of the cayley
table will not affect the other elements, meaning that this is our ”do-nothing”
transformation. Thus, R0 is the identity element for D4. To solve for the
inverse for the group we look to see that if a · b = e then b is the inverse of
a for a, b ∈ G.
