Power sets and soluble subgroups

Martin W. Liebeck, Aner Shalev

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We prove that for certain positive integers k, such as 12, a normal subgroup of a finite group which consists of kth powers is necessarily soluble. This gives rise to new solubility criteria, and solves an open problem from a 2013 paper by the authors.
