Capability of nilpotent products of cyclic groups II

From the journal


In Part I it was shown that if G is a p-group of class k, generated by elements of orders , then a necessary condition for the capability of G is that r > 1 and . It was also shown that when G is the k-nilpotent product of the cyclic groups generated by those elements and k = p = 2 or k < p, then the given conditions are also sufficient. We make a correction related to the small class case, and extend the sufficiency result to k = p for an arbitrary prime p.
