On abelian versions of critical factorization theorem

Sergey Avgustinovich, Juhani Karhumäki, Svetlana Puzynina (2012)

RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications


In the paper we study abelian versions of the critical factorization theorem. We investigate both similarities and differences between the abelian powers and the usual powers. The results we obtained show that the constraints for abelian powers implying periodicity should be quite strong, but still natural analogies exist.

Sum-dominant sets and restricted-sum-dominant sets in finite abelian groups

David B. Penman, Matthew D. Wells (2014)

Acta Arithmetica


We call a subset A of an abelian group G sum-dominant when |A+A| > |A-A|. If |A⨣A| > |A-A|, where A⨣A comprises the sums of distinct elements of A, we say A is restricted-sum-dominant. In this paper we classify the finite abelian groups according to whether or not they contain sum-dominant sets (respectively restricted-sum-dominant sets). We also consider how much larger the sumset can be than the difference set in this context. Finally, generalising work of Zhao, we provide asymptotic...

Inverse zero-sum problems in finite Abelian p-groups

Benjamin Girard (2010)

Colloquium Mathematicae


We study the minimal number of elements of maximal order occurring in a zero-sumfree sequence over a finite Abelian p-group. For this purpose, and in the general context of finite Abelian groups, we introduce a new number, for which lower and upper bounds are proved in the case of finite Abelian p-groups. Among other consequences, our method implies that, if we denote by exp(G) the exponent of the finite Abelian p-group G considered, every zero-sumfree sequence S with maximal possible...

Group algebras with centrally metabelian unit groups.

Meena Sahai (1996)

Publicacions Matemàtiques


Given a field K of characteristic p > 2 and a finite group G, necessary and sufficient conditions for the unit group U(KG) of the group algebra KG to be centrally metabelian are obtained. It is observed that U(KG) is centrally metabelian if and only if KG is Lie centrally metabelian.
