From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- Any cyclic group is metacyclic.
- The direct product or semidirect product of two cyclic groups is metacyclic. These include the dihedral groups and the quasidihedral groups.
- The dicyclic groups are metacyclic. (Note that a dicyclic group is not necessarily a semidirect product of two cyclic groups.)
- Every finite group of squarefree order is metacyclic.
- More generally every Z-group is metacyclic. A Z-group is a group whose Sylow subgroups are cyclic.
