### How far is a countably infinite reduced abelian $p$-group from being an infinite direct sum?

Question Let $G$ be a countably infinite reduced abelian $p$-group. Is it always possible to write it has an infinite direct sums of non-trivial groups? If it is not true, how far is $G$ from being an ...

### Element of order $p$ and finite height $\geq1$ in a reduced abelian group $p$-group with an element of order $p^2$

This is a reference request for the following statement: Fact: Let $G$ be a reduced abelian $p$-group with an element of order $p^2$. Then $G$ contains an element of order $p$ and of finite height at ...

### Number of orbits for abelian group actions

Suppose $G$ is an abelian group acting faithfully on two sets, $X$ and $Y$, of the same size. None of $G$, $X$ and $Y$ is finite. Now suppose $G$ is the union of abelian groups $G_i$, where $i$ varies ...

### Any abelian Lie subgroup containes a connected Lie subgroup of codimension 1 [closed]

I am trying to understand the proof of the following claim (see A.L. Onishchik, E.B. Vinberg (Eds.) Lie Groups and Lie Algebras III, p.50, Theorem 3.1). Theorem 3.1 (ii) If the Lie group $G$ is ...

### Abelian groups such that $A \cong \mathrm{End}(A)$ and "complete rings"

Motivation: for any ring $R$ there is the natural monomorphism $\mathrm{in} \colon R \to \mathrm{End}(R_{add}): r \mapsto (x \mapsto rx)$, where $R_{add}$ is an additive abelian group ( rings are ...

### Almost exactness - terminology

Consider a sequence of (torsion-free) abelian groups \begin{equation*} \dots\stackrel{p}{\longrightarrow} G\stackrel{q}{\longrightarrow}\dots \end{equation*} with the property \begin{equation*} \text{...

### Are condensed vector spaces over finite fields always solid?

The Clausen-Scholze theory of condensed mathematics offers an abelian category with enough projective objects that embraces the study of arbitrary locally compact (and Hausdorff) groups. The behaviour ...

### How many non-isomorphic abelian subgroups of the permutation group $S_n$?

I am interested in how many (pairwise non-isomorphic) subgroups of the permutation group $S_n$ are abelian. ($n \in \mathbb{N}$ arbitrary and possibly big) Are you aware of any references which treat ...

### Existence of abelian group extension relative to group homomorphism

Let $f: A \to B\$ be an abelian group homomorphism. Are there abelian groups $G,\ H,\ K$ such that $K \subseteq H \subseteq G$ and the map $$\pi \circ i: H \to G/K$$ which is the composition of ...

### Fourier transform on lattice strip

I am working with a triangular lattice $L=\{n_1 a_2 + n_2 a_2 : n\in\mathbb{Z}^2 \}$ and $a_1 = \pmatrix{1 \\ 0}$ and $a_2 = \frac{1}{2} \pmatrix{-1 \\ \sqrt{3}}$, and I want to compute the Pontryagin ...

### Structures of subgroups of a finite abelian p-group

$\newcommand\la{\langle}\newcommand\ra{\rangle}$Let $G=\mathbb{Z}/p^{i_1}\times\cdots\times\mathbb{Z}/p^{i_r}$ with $i_1\leq\ldots\leq i_r$ be a finite abelian $p$-group. Then there can be many ...
