Prime power order implies not centerless
Revision as of 17:29, 24 February 2011 by Vipul
- Prime power order implies nilpotent: This follows from the result that a group of prime power order is centerless, the fact that a quotient of a group of prime power order also has prime power order, and by induction.
- Prime power order implies center is normality-large: This is a stronger version of the result stated on this page; the center is not just nontrivial, it intersects every nontrivial normal subgroup, nontrivially.
- Locally finite Artinian p-group implies not centerless: This is an attempt to weaken the hypothesis from finiteness, to weaker conditions.
Since both are groups of prime power order, the group being nontrivial is equivalent to the center being nontrivial.
