In a recent letter to the GAP-forum, I mentioned the Kourovka

Notebook. I got the appended detailed information about it from Dr.

Khukhro who is presenly in Freiburg, Germany, which hereby I want to

make known to all members of the forum.

Happy New Year Joachim Neubueser

UNSOLVED PROBLEMS IN GROUP THEORY

THE KOUROVKA NOTEBOOK

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The 12-th revised and augmented edition

V.D.Mazurov and E.I.Khukhro, Editors

Institute of Mathematics, Novosibirsk, 1992

154 p. in A5 format, softcover, 20,- DM

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

This collection of unsolved problems in Group Theory and close areas

is published regularly, every 2-3 years, starting from 1965. Each new

edition is supplemented with new problems and brief comments on the

solved problems from the previous editions.

The problems are proposed by the experts in Group Theory and close

areas, their level varies from a Ph.D. thesis to long-standing

well-known problems.

Among the authors there are many prominent Russian mathematicians, such

as S.I.Adian, S.N.Chernikov, Yu.L.Ershov, Yu.M.Gorchakov, R.I.Grigorchuk,

M.I.Kargapolov, A.I.Kostrikin, A.I.Mal'cev, Yu.I.Merzliakov,

A.Yu.Ol'shanskii, V.P.Platonov, B.I.Plotkin, V.N.Remeslennikov,

L.A.Shemetkov, A.L.Shmel'kin, V.P.Shunkov, A.E.Zalesskii and others.

Having acquired internation popularity, the Kourovka Notebook contains

also problems of R.Baer, G.Baumslag, R.Carter, J.Dixon, R.Griess,

K.Gruenberg, B.Hartley, H.Heineken, G.Glauberman, O.Kegel,

B.Neumann, P.Neumann, R.Phillips, C.Praeger, D.Robinson, K.Roggenkamp,

J.Roseblade, J.Thompson, G.Wall, B.Wehrfritz, J.Wiegold, H.Wielandt,

J.Wilson, H.Zieschang and others.

Some of the problems are quickly solved due to the fact that they are

read by specialists from other fields of Group Theory, others wait for

substantial breakthroughs for many years. (Of course, it is often easier

to pose two problems than to solve one.) It is interesting to follow the

progress in the development of Group Theory, as more and more of these

problems become solved (for example, now about 3/4 of the problems from

the 1-st edition have been solved!).

The present book is the 12-th revised and augmented edition (1992), it

is now published in two versions, in Russian and in English. The English

version is now available for 20,- DM per copy. (This is to cover expenses

and to improve further editions; since there are now difficulties for

Russian mathematicians, this kind of support is vital for the further

existence of the Kourovka Notebook.)

Orders (a check, 20,- DM per copy, may be enclosed)
