### Abstract

Let x^{m} - a be irreducible over F with char F{does not divide}m and let α be a root of x^{m} - a. The purpose of this paper is to study the lattice of subfields of F(α) F and to this end C( F(α) F, k) is defined to be the number of subfields of F(α) of degree k over F. C( F(α) F, p^{n}) is explicitly determined for p a prime and the following structure theorem for the lattice of subfields is proved. Let N be the maximal normal subfield of F(α) over F and set n = |N : F|, then C( F(α) F, k) = C( F(α) F, (k, n)) = C( N F, (k, n)). The irreducible binomials x^{s} - b, x^{s} - c are said to be equivalent if there exist roots β^{s} = b, γ^{s} = a such that F(β) = F(γ). All the mutually inequivalent binomials which have roots in F(α) are determined. Finally these results are applied to the study of normal binomials and those irreducible binomials x^{2e} - a which are normal over F (char F ≠ 2) together with their Galois groups are characterized.
