Groups and Combinatorics Seminar
Phill Shultz (UWA) will speak on
A duality for mixed abelian groups
at 12 noon on Tuesday 29th of March in MLR2
Abstract: An abelian group is mixed if it contains nonzero elements of finite and of infinite order, and well mixed if it is not the direct sum of a torsion and a torsionfree group. The classification of well mixed groups is an intractable problem.
In this seminar, I will use a duality to describe the structure of well mixed groups G satisfying two finiteness conditions:
1. G has finite rank, that is, G contains a maximal free subgroup of finite dimension;
2. G is selfsmall, that is, the image of every homomorphism from G into an infinite direct sum of copies of G is contained in the direct sum of finitely many of these copies.
All welcome
