abstract = {Let N be a nilpotent group with torsion subgroup TN, and let α: TN → T' be a surjective homomorphism such that kerα is normal in N. Then α determines a nilpotent group Ñ such that TÑ = T' and a function α* from the Mislin genus of N to that of Ñ in N (and hence Ñ) is finitely generated. The association α → α* satisfies the usual functiorial conditions. Moreover [N,N] is finite if and only if [Ñ,Ñ] is finite and α* is then a homomorphism of abelian groups. If Ñ belongs to the special class studied by Casacuberta and Hilton (Comm. in Alg. 19(7) (1991), 2051-2069), then α* is surjective. The construction α* thus enables us to prove that the genus of N is non-trivial in many cases in which N itself is not in the special class; and to establish non-cancellation phenomena relating to such groups N.},

AB - Let N be a nilpotent group with torsion subgroup TN, and let α: TN → T' be a surjective homomorphism such that kerα is normal in N. Then α determines a nilpotent group Ñ such that TÑ = T' and a function α* from the Mislin genus of N to that of Ñ in N (and hence Ñ) is finitely generated. The association α → α* satisfies the usual functiorial conditions. Moreover [N,N] is finite if and only if [Ñ,Ñ] is finite and α* is then a homomorphism of abelian groups. If Ñ belongs to the special class studied by Casacuberta and Hilton (Comm. in Alg. 19(7) (1991), 2051-2069), then α* is surjective. The construction α* thus enables us to prove that the genus of N is non-trivial in many cases in which N itself is not in the special class; and to establish non-cancellation phenomena relating to such groups N.
