Topics in Group Theory

Part of the Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series book series (SUMS)


In this final chapter we extend our knowledge of group theory. Among other aspects of finite groups, we investigate permutation groups and obtain two results of cardinal importance in the theory of finite groups. In the first of these, we establish the structure of Abelian groups and, in the second, we establish the existence of the so-called ‘Sylow p-subgroups’ of a finite group.
