Non-finiteness results for Nil-groups

Joachim Grunewald

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 7 (2007) 1979–1986
Abstract

Generalizing an idea of Farrell we prove that for a ring Λ and a ring automorphism α of finite order the groups Nil0(Λ;α) and all of its p–primary subgroups are either trivial or not finitely generated as an abelian group. We also prove that if β and γ are ring automorphisms such that β γ is of finite order then Nil0(Λ;Λβ,Λγ) and all of its p–primary subgroups are either trivial or not finitely generated as an abelian group. These Nil-groups include the Nil-groups appearing in the decomposition of Ki of virtually cyclic groups for i 1.
