Tower of field extensions #

In this file we prove the tower law for arbitrary extensions and finite extensions. Suppose L is a field extension of K and K is a field extension of F. Then [L:F] = [L:K] [K:F] where [E₁:E₂] means the E₂-dimension of E₁.

In fact we generalize it to vector spaces, where L is not necessarily a field, but just a vector space over K.

Implementation notes #

We prove two versions, since there are two notions of dimensions: vector_space.dim which gives the dimension of an arbitrary vector space as a cardinal, and finite_dimensional.findim which gives the dimension of a finitely-dimensional vector space as a natural number.
