    If G ={a + b*sqrt2 | a,b rational} and H = {matrix a 2b, b a | a,b rational}, H is a 2 x 2 matrix -

    a 2b
    b a

    show that G and H are isomorphic under addition. Prove that G and H are closed under multiplication.

    I know I need to define the function map first, but I don't know what it is in this problem, let alone prove that it is one-to-one and onto. Any help would be much appreciated.
