Lemma: Kernel and Image of Group Homomorphism

Let \((G,\ast)\) and \((H,\cdot)\) be two groups with the respective identities \(e_G\) and \(e_H\) and \(f:G\rightarrow H\) be a group homomorphism.

We define:

The kernel and the image of $f$ fulfill the following defining properties:

  1. \(\ker(f)=\{e_G\}\) \(\Longleftrightarrow f\) is injective.
  2. \(\operatorname{im}(f)=H\) \(\Longleftrightarrow f\) is surjective.
