Nilpotency and Solvability in Categories

Part of the Mathematics and Its Applications book series (MAIA, volume 336)


Nilpotent and solvable ideals are discussed in categories. It is shown that these two concepts differ in the category of near-rings although they coincide in the category of rings. Certain generalisations of theorems in rings, groups, near-rings, Lie algebras, etc. are also proven.
