I'm completely new to groups. I am trying to follow the proof of (1) in the attached picture. I do not understand the part in the first line of the proof of (1) where we have $(a \oplus \tilde{a})a_1$. What I mean is, it seems strange that the $a_1$ is written right next to it. Are we assuming that multiplication is an operation as well? That notation is not used for the whole rest of the proofs. P.S. I don't know why the attachment is displaying sideways, I uploaded it right side up. This comes out of the book Linear Algebra by Jorg Liesen and Volker Mehrmann page 24.

It seems like a typo.

Okay, thanks. I'll just try to find a different proof online.

Why is it so hard for them to proofread?
