Abstract:
Let K/F be a separable extension. (i) If K = F(α) with αⁿ ∈ F for some n, K/F is said to be a radical extension. (ii) If there exists a sequence of fields F = F₀ ⊆ F₁ ⊆ ... ⊆ F(s) = K so that Fᵢ₊₁ = Fᵢ(αᵢ) with αᵢⁿ⁽ⁱ⁾ ∈ Fᵢ for some nᵢ ∈ N, charF ∧nᵢ for every i, and [Fᵢ₊₁ : Fᵢ] = nᵢ, K/F is said to be a radical tower. In the first part of this work, we present two theorems which give sufficient conditions for a field extension K/F to be radical. In the second part, we present results which provide conditions under which every subfield of a radical tower is also a radical tower.
