Sambo, Abdussalami Abubakar
MetadataShow full item record
General Abelian group theory is a branch of algebra that has achieved several satisfactory structural theorems. The aim of this paper is to discuss the most important of these theorems so as to give an overview of this very interesting field. In trying to keep the size of the paper within reasonable bounds we shall omit the proofs of many lemmas and give only an outline of some of the theorems. Consequently the reader is assumed to have some knowledge of the most elementary group theoretic results. Other elementary results are outlined in the first chapter of the paper.With honors.
