Kaplansky explicitly states in the forward that this book is not so much aimed at those wanting to learn about infinite abelian groups, but rather at those wanting to learn about infinite algebra. While this book is certainly a superb introduction to the theory of infinite abelian groups, it does a better job of teaching familiarity with the methods of proof commonly used in more advanced 5/5(1).

INFINITE ABELIAN GROUPS § Examples of Infinite Abelian Groups. Many of the groups which arise in various parts of mathematics are abelian.

That is, they satisfy the commutative law: = yxxy. If we’re working in a totally abelian environment it is usual to use additive notation: + y. The reason for this is that while multiplication of xFile Size: KB. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Kaplansky, Irving, Infinite Abelian groups.

On the other hand, infinite abelian groups are far from classified. (See here.) Classical examples would be the cyclic groups or the Klein four-group.

Working with abelian groups might lead to the feeling that there must be some sort of free part (i.e.) and some sort of torsion part (i.e.

elements such that for some). One could then expect. Publisher Summary. This chapter discusses the basic subgroups of basic subgroup of p-groups is one of the most fundamental notions in the theory of abelian groups of arbitrary power.A p-group cannot always be decomposed into a direct sum of cyclic groups, not even under the assumption of absence of elements of infinite height; consequently, a p-group has.

One can see on every text (book, lesson, comments) that a direct sum/coproduct of abelian groups is the same as a finite product but in the infinite case, the direct sum/coproduct is only a subgroup of the product. Purchase Abelian Groups, Volume 12 - 3rd Edition. Print Book & E-Book.

ISBNBook Edition: 3. History Origin of the term. The term abelian group comes from Niels Henrick Abel, a mathematician who worked with groups even before the formal theory was laid down, in order to prove unsolvability of the quintic. The word abelian is usually begun with a small a.

wikinote: Some older content on the wiki uses capital A for 're trying to update this content. In mathematics, an abelian category is a category in which morphisms and objects can be added and in which kernels and cokernels exist and have desirable properties.

The motivating prototype example of an abelian category is the category of abelian groups, theory originated in an effort to unify several cohomology theories by Alexander Grothendieck and independently in.

Abelian group explained. In abstract algebra, an abelian group, also called a commutative group, is a group in which the result of applying the group operation to two group elements does not depend on the order in which they are written.

That is, these are the groups that obey the axiom of n groups generalize the arithmetic of addition of integers. A more complete discussion of pure subgroups, their relation to infinite abelian group theory, and a survey of their literature is given in Irving Kaplansky's little red book.

Examples. Every direct summand of a group is a pure subgroup; Every pure subgroup of a pure subgroup is pure. A divisible subgroup of an Abelian group is pure. abelian group [resp. vector space] extends uniquely to a homomorphism [resp. linear mapping. There is one subtle difference: in a vector space, any minimal generating set is a basis; however, this is not true for free abelian groups.

For example, the additive group Z is a free abelian group. Contents: See scans of front and back covers, publication information, and Table of Contents.

Definition of height. Let A be an abelian group and g an element of p-height of g in A, denoted h p (g), is the largest natural number n such that the equation p n x = g has a solution in x ∈ A, or the symbol ∞ if a solution exists for all h p (g) = n if and only if g ∈ p n A and g ∉ p n+1 allows one to refine the notion of height.

For any ordinal α, there is a. Now from a result of P. Hall, Kulatilaka and Kargapolov (which can be found in Robinson's book "A course in the theory of groups", Section ), one knows that every locally finite group which is infinite, contains an infinite abelian subgroup.

Book Description. This volume contains information offered at the international conference held in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. It presents the latest developments in the most active areas of abelian groups, particularly in torsion-free abelian groups.;For both researchers and graduate students, it reflects the current status of abelian group theory.;Abelian Groups discusses:.

It only takes a minute to sign up. In the first edition of his famous book Infinite Abelian Groups inKaplansky proposed three “test problems” for abelian groups. The motivation was that if these did not have positive answers for some particular class of groups, then we could pretty much give up on a satisfactory structure theorem for that : Jeremy Rickard.

Abelian Groups A group is Abelian if xy = yx for all group elements x and y. The basis theorem An Abelian group is the direct product of cyclic p groups.

This direct product de-composition is unique, up to a reordering of the factors. Proof: Let n = pn1 1 p nk k be the order of the Abelian group G, with pi’s distinct Size: KB.

Kaplansky's book is an excellent introduction, it would be a wonderful place to start. His writing is clear, conversational. The notes at the end are exceptional.

Griffith's book would be a good follow-up to Kaplansky. It covers more advanced topics.Is it possible for an infinite, non-cyclic group to exist? I thought maybe the group of all integers is an infinite non-cyclic group, but I'm not sure if that's true.

Any input would be really helpful, as I'm very shaky on cyclic/non-cyclic groups. Thanks.
