The category of profinite groups is the pro-completion of the category of finite groups, which means its opposite is the ind-completion of the opposite of the category of finite groups; the latter has finite colimits, and as a general fact the ind-completion of a small category with finite colimits is a locally finitely presentable category. Tate was the first to study the cohomology of profinite groups. In his unpublished article (reprinted as Chapter VII of Lang's notes "Topics in the Cohomology of Groups"). He writes: "We introduce a new category of groups and a cohomological functor, obtained as .

Profinite groups are of interest to mathematicians in a variety of areas, including number theory, abstract groups, and analysis. This text provides an introduction to the subject and is designed to convey basic facts and enable readers to enhance their skills in manipulating profinite groups.

The book is reasonably self-contained. Profinite groups are Galois groups. As such they are of interest in algebraic number theory. Much of recent research on abstract infinite groups is related to profinite groups because residually finite groups are naturally embedded in a profinite group.

This is the first book to be dedicated solely to the study of general profinite groups. It provides a thorough introduction to the subject, designed not only to convey the basic facts but also to enable readers to enhance their skills in manipulating profinite : Hardcover.

This is the first book to be dedicated entirely to profinite groups, an area of algebra with important links to number theory and other areas of mathematics. It provides a comprehensive overview of the subject; prerequisite knowledge is kept to a minimum, and several major theorems are presented in an accessible form.

The book would provide a valuable introduction for. Profinite Graphs and Groups will appeal to students and researchers interested in profinite groups, geometric group theory, graphs and connections with the theory of formal languages. A complete reference on the subject, the book includes historical and bibliographical notes as well as a discussion of open questions and suggestions for further Brand: Springer International Publishing.

Profinite groups Profinite groups book of interest to mathematicians working in a variety of areas, including number theory, abstract groups, and analysis. The underlying theory reflects these diverse influences, with methods drawn from both algebra and topology and with fascinating connections to field theory.

(AM), Volume Get this from a library. Profinite graphs and groups. [Luis Ribes] -- "This book offers a detailed introduction to graph theoretic methods in profinite groups and applications to abstract groups.

It is the first to provide a comprehensive treatment of the subject. The. In mathematics, a pro-p group (for some prime number p) is a profinite group such that for any open normal subgroup the quotient group / is a that, as profinite groups are compact, the open subgroups are exactly the closed subgroups of finite index, so that the discrete quotient group is always finite.

Alternatively, one can define a pro-p group to be the inverse. The aim of this book is to serve both as an introduction to profinite groups and as a reference for specialists in some areas of the theory. In neither of these two aspects have we tried to be. The diagonal embedding embeds Z as a dense subgroup of Z ^.Thus Z ^ is the closed subgroup generated by 1.

Moreover, for each profinite group G and each element g ∈ G, the map 1 ↦ g uniquely extends to a homomorphism of Z ^ intoZ ^ is the free profinite group generated by one element. Here and in general for profinite groups, whenever we use the term.

A complete reference on the subject, the book includes historical and bibliographical notes as well as a discussion of open questions and suggestions for further. I started studying Profinite Groups a few weeks ago. I'm using the book "Profinite Groups" by Wilson as a basis, but the book is not clear enough sometimes (probably because I'm studying it for the first time).

Classify a book as good or bad is subjective, so I would just like book-recommendations for me to analyze. The final part of the book is dedicated to applications of the profinite theory to abstract groups, with sections on finitely generated subgroups of free groups, separability conditions in free and amalgamated products, and algorithms in free groups and finite monoids.

Profinite Graphs and Groups will appeal to students and researchers. Profinite groups are interesting because they are so similar to finite groups. For example, there is a Sylow theorem describing pro-p subgroups of profinite groups.

A first moment in the theory (and in this book) happens when one tries to prove as many extensions of this sort as possible.: Profinite Groups, Arithmetic, and Geometry.

(AM) (Annals of Mathematics Studies) (Annals of Mathematics Studies (67)) () by Shatz, Stephen S. and a great selection of similar New, Used and Collectible Books available now at great Range: $ - $Book Description: In this volume, the author covers profinite groups and their cohomology, Galois cohomology, and local class field theory, and concludes with a treatment of duality.

His objective is to present effectively that body of material upon which all modern research in Diophantine geometry and higher arithmetic is based, and to do so.
