On groups with a permutational property on commutators of weight 4

  • Chiara Nicotera


We show that a periodic 2-generator group G with no involutions is metabelian if and only if for any \( a, x_1, x_2,x_3 \in G \) there exists a nontrivial permutation \( \sigma \in \Bbb {S}_3 \) such that \( [a, x_1, x_2, x_3 ] = [a,x_{\sigma (1)},x_{\sigma (2)},x_{\sigma (3)}] \).
