Fantastic properties of Z/2Z
@Denis, of course not. The infinite dihedral group $Z/2Z*Z/2Z$ has elements of infinite order. |

Fantastic properties of Z/2Z
@Todd, I understand you but I prefer to use slightly different terminology. See this discussion in comments: mathoverflow.net/q/92972/24165 |

Fantastic properties of Z/2Z
@Emil, every group of exponent two is a direct product of several two-element groups (if you believe the Axiom of Choice). |

Which groups are LERF?
It is not LERF because of the Mikhailova subgroup with undecidable membership problem. |

Two questions about axiomatic rank of groups
@M.Shahryari, no way. Consider the variety of abelian groups. It satisfies the metabelian law $[[x,y],[z,t]]=1$ or the nilpotency law $[[x,y],z]=1$. Do you believe that these laws are equivalent to two-variable laws? |

Two questions about axiomatic rank of groups
To question 1 the answer is obviously negative. Just consider the trivial variety, it has finite axiomatic rank but satisfies all identities. |

Are infinite groups “locally topologizable”?
It is on page 339 of English edition. Unfortunately, Google preview rejects to show this page to me (but I may read the table of contents). |

I have a Russian edition. This is Chapter 10, Section 31, Subsection 3. |

Invariant planes of a nilpotent matrix with two Jordan blocks of size two
This is the description of all of them, because any invariant subspace containing a vector $v$ shoud contain $Nv$. |

Take any vector $v$ not belonging to the kernel of $N$ and consider the space $\langle v,Nv\rangle$. This family and the kernel of $N$ are all spaces you ask about. |

An element $g$ in a group such that neither $g=1$ nor $g\ne 1$ can be proved.
@Dan, surely. What you said is basically Metatheorem 3.5.2 from my answer. |
