Fine Art


In mathematics, in the realm of group theory, a group is said to be capable if it occurs as the inner automorphism group of some group. These groups were first studied by Reinhold Baer, who showed that a finite abelian group is capable if and only if it is a product of cyclic groups of orders n1,...,nk where ni divides ni+1 and nk–1=nk.
