The Theory of Infinite Soluble Groups

John C. Lennox and Derek J. S. Robinson


This book provides a comprehensive account of the theory of infinite soluble groups, from its foundations up to research level. Topics covered include: polycyclic groups, Cernikov groups, Mal’cev completions, soluble linear groups, P. Hall’s theory of finitely generated soluble groups, soluble groups with finite rank, soluble groups whose abelian subgroups satisfy finiteness conditions, simple modules over polycyclic groups, the Jategaonkar-Roseblade theorem, centrality in finitely generated soluble groups and the Lennox-Roseblade theorem, algorithmic problems for polycyclic and metabelian gro ...
