Analytic Pro-P Groups by John D. Dixon

Book Description

The first edition of this book was the indispensable reference for researchers in the theory of pro-p groups. In this second edition the presentation has been improved and important new material has been added. The first part of the book is group-theoretic. It develops the theory of pro-p groups of finite rank, starting from first principles and using elementary methods. Part II introduces p-adic analytic groups: by taking advantage of the theory developed in Part I, it is possible to define these, and derive all the main results of p-adic Lie theory, without having to develop any sophisticated analytic machinery. Part III, consisting of new material, takes the theory further. Among those topics discussed are the theory of pro-p groups of finite coclass, the dimension subgroup series, and its associated graded Lie algebra. The final chapter sketches a theory of analytic groups over pro-p rings other than the p-adic integers.

Problems in Group Theory by John D. Dixon Problems in Group Theory, Paperback (February 2007)

265 challenging problems in all phases of group theory, gathered for the most part from papers published since 1950, although some classics are included.

Permutation Groups by John D. Dixon Permutation Groups, Hardback (April 1996)

Using basic ideas and examples in the theory of permutation groups, this book develops the combinatorial and group theoretic structure of primitive groups leading to the proof of the O'Nan-Scott Theorem, linking finite primitive groups and finite simple groups.
