### Schur's Theorem about the derived subgroup

(Schur) Suppose Z(G) is of finite index in G, then the derived subgroup of G is finite. We know Schur's lemma that says: Let |G:Z(G)|=m. Then the map g to g^m is a homomorphism from G into ...

### Schur's theorem in transfer theory

M.Isaacs’ Algebra a graduate course page 119 : (Schur). Let $|G:Z(G)|=m<∞$. Then the map $g↦g^m$ is a homomorphism from G into Z(G). Proof. In fact, we will show that this map is the transfer ...

### What is the relationship between solvable, nilpotent and transfer homomorphism?

I know some facts such as: Nilpotent groups are solvable, $p$-groups are nilpotent, a finite group whose order is a product of distinct primes is solvable, and finite groups are nilpotent if and only ...

### An Intuitive Explanation of the Transfer Homomorphism

I just learned about the transfer homomorphism, and I am having trouble internalizing it. I am learning from 'A Course in the Theory of Groups', and I was hoping that perhaps someone had a more ...
