Groups of prime-fourth order

From Groupprops
Jump to: navigation, search

This article is about the groups of prime-fourth order for an odd prime number, i.e., the groups of order p^4 where p is an odd prime. The special case p = 2 is somewhat different -- see groups of order 16 for a summary of information on these groups.

Among the odd primes p, the case p = 3 is slightly different from the other primes.
