Group of prime power order
(Redirected from Finite p-group)
The article defines a property of groups, where the definition may be in terms of a particular prime that serves as parameter

A group of prime power order is defined in the following equivalent ways:
- It is a finite group whose order is a power of a prime.
- It is a finite group that is also a p-group for some prime : the order of every element is a power of that same prime
