On Conjugacy p-Separability of Free Products of Two Groups with Amalgamation

  • E. A. Ivanova


It is proved that a free product of two finite p-groups with amalgamated central subgroups is a conjugacy p-separable group. With the help of this result, it is proved that a free product with amalgamated subgroups of two finitely generated Abelian groups is a residually finite p-group if and only if it is conjugacy p-separable.
