Periodic Locally Compact Groups
A Study of a Class of Totally Disconnected Topological Groups
- An authoritative monograph on locally compact periodic groups.
- Written by well-known experts in the field.
- Of interest to researchers and graduate students in group theory and algebra.
Aims and Scope
This authoritative book on periodic locally compact groups is divided into three parts. The first part covers the necessary background material on locally compact groups, the second part develops a general structure theory of locally compact near abelian groups, while the third part uses this theory for a complete and novel presentation of Mukhin's results which generalized Iwasawa's work for abstract groups in the case of locally compact groups.
