Kostrikin’s theorem on Engel groups of prime power exponent

Seymour Bachmuth and Horace Yomishi Mochizuki

Vol. 26 (1968), No. 2, 197–213
Abstract

Theorem Let p 3 be a prime and e 1 any integer. Then there exists a group G which has exponent pe and Engel length e(pe pe1) + (p 3)2.

If e = 1, this reduces to a Theorem of Kostrikin [2], whose proof employed other methods. Our method yields the additional information, that G is a solvable group of class at most k + 1, where k is the least integer such that 2k1 p 2.
