Dominions in varieties generated by simple groups

  • Arturo Magidin


We determine the dominion (in the sense of Isbell) of a subgroup H of a finite nonabelian simple group S in Var(S). We also obtain necessary and suficient conditions for H to be epimorphically embedded in S, and derive several examples, which generalize an example of B. H. Neumann. Finally, we extend the results to a variety generated by a family of finite nonabelian simple groups.

Key words and phrases: Dominion, simple group, epimorphism.
