A combinatorial condition on a certain variety of groups

  • B. Taeri


Let n be an integer and \( \mathcal B_n \) be the variety defined by the law [x n ,y][x,y n ]-1 = 1.¶ Let \( \mathcal B_n^* \) be the class of groups in which for any infinite subsets X, Y there exist \( x \in X \) and \( y \in Y \) such that [x n ,y][x,y n ]-1 = 1. For \( n \in {\pm 2, 3\} \) we prove that¶\( \mathcal B_n^* = \mathcal B_n \cup \mathcal F \), \( \mathcal F \) being the class of finite groups. Also for \( n \in {- 3, 4\} \) and an infinite group G which has finitely many elements of order 2 or 3 we prove that \( G \in \mathcal B_n^* \) if and only if \( G \in \mathcal B_n \).
