This article gives the statement, and possibly proof, of a particular group or type of group (namely, General linear group over integers (?)) satisfying a particular group property (namely, Group in which all elements of finite order have a common bound on order (?)).

Statement

Suppose n is a natural number. Then, the order of any element of the General linear group (?) GL(n,\mathbb{Z}) having finite order is bounded by a function of n.
