Free pro-p Groups

Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


In the following, p shall always denote a prime number. We restrict our considerations to those profinite groups that are of interest to us as Galois groups of p-extensions, namely pro-p groups. A pro-p group is a profinite group that can be realized as a profinite limit of finite p-groups. We start with a detailed discussion of free prop-p groups.
