can we use Lazard Correspondence for p-groups of maximal class and why?

share|cite|improve this question
You can use the Lazard correspondence on any $p$-group of class less than $p$. So, in particular, you can also use it on $p$-groups of maximal class, as long as $p$ is larger than the class. This is useful for "asymptotic" statements, but if you are interested in results for a fixed $p$, or for all $p$, then you will have to bound the order $p^n$ of your group quite severely. – Max Horn Apr 5 '12 at 10:28
