Let B be a Galois algebra with Galois group G, Jg={bBbx=g(x)b for all xB} for gG, and BJg=Beg for a central idempotent eg. Then a relation is given between the set of elements in the Boolean algebra (Ba,) generated by {0,eggG} and a set of subgroups of G, and a central Galois algebra Be with a Galois subgroup of G is characterized for an eBa.
