In 1872, the Norwegian mathematician Peter Ludwig Mejdell Sylow  published a set of theorems which are now known as the Sylow theorems. These important theorems describe the nature of maximalp-subgroups of a finite group, which are now called Sylow p-subgroups. (For convenience, we will collect the Sylow theorems into a single theorem.)
