The torsion group of a radical extension

David Andrew Gay and William Yslas Vélez

Vol. 92 (1981), No. 2, 317–327
Abstract

The torsion group of a radical field extension is defined and its structure determined using a theorem of Kneser. In the case of a number field, a representation theorem is proved characterizing all abelian groups that can appear as torsion groups of a radical extension.
