Mathematics Asked by La Rias on December 24, 2020

Let $ G $ and $ H $ be finite groups. If $ gcd(|G|,|H|) = 1 $, then I want to show that

$$

text{Aut}(G times H) cong text{Aut}(G) times text{Aut}(H).

$$

In my attempt, I first defined the map $ f: text{Aut}(G) times text{Aut}(H) to text{Aut}(G times H) $ by

$$

forall (phi_{G},phi_{H}) in text{Aut}(G) times text{Aut}(H): quad

f(phi_{G},phi_{H}) stackrel{text{def}}{=} phi_{G} times phi_{H},

$$

but I don’t know how to use the fact that $ gcd(|G|,|H|) = 1 $.

Automatically ${rm Aut}(G)times{rm Aut}(H)subseteq{rm Aut}(Gtimes H)$. The gcd condition forces this to be an equality.

Let $phiin{rm Aut}(Gtimes H)$. Show $phi(Gtimes1)= Gtimes1$; argue $subseteq$ by contradiction (show the order of an element outside of $Gtimes1$ is divisible by a factor of $|H|$...). Symmetrically, $phi(1times H)=1times H$.

After that it is straightforward to check $phi=(phi|_G,phi|_H)$, hence $phiin{rm Aut}(G)times{rm Aut}(H)$.
