1.2 Prime subfields

1.2.1 Definition Call $\displaystyle{\bigcap\{S\mid S\subset_{\small F} F\}}$ the prime subfield of field $F$

1.2.2 Remark A prime subfield $\text{psub}(F)$ is a field.

1.2.3 Examples $\mathbb{Q},\;\mathbb{Z}_p\;$($p$ is prime) are their own prime subfields.

1.2.4 Proposition For any field $F,\;\text{psub}(F)$ is isomorphic to either $\mathbb{Z}_p$
$\qquad$for some prime $p$(in which case we say $F$ has characteristic $p$)
$\qquad$or to $\mathbb{Q}$ ($F$ has characteristic $0$ then).
