# Nilpotent group that is powered for a set of primes

From Groupprops

This page describes a group property obtained as a conjunction (AND) of two (or more) more fundamental group properties: powered group for a set of primes and nilpotent group

## Definition

Suppose is a group and is a set of primes. We say that is a -powered nilpotent group if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

- is a -powered group and is also a nilpotent group.
- is a nilpotent group that is both -divisible and -torsion-free.

### Equivalence of definitions

Part of the proof relies on equivalence of definitions of nilpotent group that is torsion-free for a set of primes.
