On the classification of abelian groups
- 91 Downloads
Remark With the exception of this remark (and perhaps one or two typos), this paper is an identical copy of a manuscript written by the author in 1967–1968 but never published in which the third axiom of countability was introduced and totally projective groups were classified. There have been dozens of subsequent papers that cited this work as “to appear” as well as in the references of a book by L. Fuchs and one by P. Griffith. To the best of the author’s knowledge, there is only one copy of the original manuscript still in existence. Taking into account these facts together with the fact that the paper is largely due to the influence of Laszlo Fuchs, it seems appropriate to publish it now in his honor.
We should advise the reader that throughout the summation symbol denotes the direct sum.
