In science:

In order to overcome this difficulty, we consider the F -radical subgroups of P ; we say that a subgroup R of P is F -radical if it is F -selfcentralizing and we have Op (cid:0) ˜F (R)(cid:1) = {1} where ˜F (R) = F (R)/FR (R) [6, 1.3]; we denote by F of F over the set of F -radical subgroups of P .

Real fields and repeated radical extensions
It is well known that intermediate fields of repeated radical extensions need not themselves be repeated radical extensions of the ground field.
Real fields and repeated radical extensions
If S were a repeated radical extension of Q, there would have to be some alternative way to express these roots in terms of real radicals.

One of the principal results of this paper is the following, which shows that at least in certain cases, intermediate fields of repeated radical extensions are themselves repeated radical extensions.

In this situation, of course, L cannot be a repeated radical extension of Q unless it is actually a radical extension.
Real fields and repeated radical extensions
We mention that in the situation of Theorem 3.3, where we are dealing with fields of characteristic zero, quadratic extensions are automatically radical extensions, and thus in the notation of the theorem, L ∩ S is a repeated radical extension of Q. (3.4) COROLLARY.
