Soluble Linear Groups

Part of the Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete book series (MATHE2, volume 76)


Direct computation shows that the triangular group Tr(n, F) is soluble of derived length at most (1- [-log2 n]) (see Exercise 1.3). By 2.3 every extension of a subgroup of Tr(n, F) by a finite soluble group is soluble and linear. The principal object of this chapter is to prove that every soluble linear group essentially has this form.
