Assignment no. 1: Due date to be negotiated. From Lang, Chapter1, Exercises 5, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14.
Additional problems: 1) find out if every automorphism of a quotient A/K of a finite cyclic group A lifts to an automorphism of A. Use the to find out if two homomorphisms of a finite cyclic group G into the automorphism group of another group N yield isomorphic semidirect products, assuming that the homomorphisms have the same range in Aut(N).
2) Classifiy nonabelian groups of order 30.

Assignment no 3: I have duplicated some pages of exercises from the book of Alperin and Bell. Do the following: From page 2627, nos. 1114, from page 80, nos. 78, from page 85, nos. 34. The last exercises (page 85) are part of a bigger set which are supposed to tell a certain story. We'll finish the story the next time around.
