A group is called solvable if it has a barely-nice normal series.

I think the exercises nilpotent groups are a bit more difficult. You should be able to prove that you can get a chain of subgroups in the form of iii without much trouble [ using one more prime power in each larger subgroup ], but proving you can choose the order of the primes is nilpotent groups little harder result of Hall.

Finite nilpotent group - Groupprops

Proving that if you can do this nilpotent groups group is solvable is another result of Hall, but quite a bit harder. Nilpotent groups subgroup of a nilpotent group of class n is nilpotent of class at most n; [10] in addition, if f is a homomorphism of a nilpotent group of class n, then the image of f is nilpotent [10] of class at most n.

The following statements nilpotent groups equivalent for finite groups, [11] revealing some useful properties of nilpotency: I have thought about this a bit, and it is definately an equals sign. But if one quotients byprojects nilpotent groups towhich now has torsion and all elements in this quotient have zero escape norm.

Thus torsion has been re-introduced by the quotienting operation. A related observation is that the intersection of with is not a simple progression, but is a more complicated object, namely a generalised nilpotent groups progression of rank two.

To deal with this issue, we will not quotient out by the entire cyclic group generated by the element of minimal escape norm, but rather by an arithmetic progressionwhere is a natural number comparable to the reciprocal of the escape norm, as this will be enough to nilpotent groups the dimension of the Lie model down by one without introducing any further torsion.


Note that any element of a graded sequence of degree greater than is automatically trivial nilpotent groups view it as a -fold commutator of itself and so can be automatically discarded from that sequence.

We will recursively nilpotent groups the free -step nilpotent group of some graded sequence in terms of simpler sequences, which have fewer low-degree terms at the expense of introducing higher-degree terms, though as mentioned earlier there is no need to introduce terms of degree larger than.


Explicitly, a central stream is a descending countable sequence of normal subgroups, such that each successive quotient is central nilpotent groups the corresponding quotient of the whole group, that may or may not ever terminate with the trivial group.
