Question[edit]

Does anyone know who was the first to prove the classification theorem for F.G.A.G ?

Another question[edit]

I am working on a problem to List all finite abelian groups of 100 elements, and have not found a very good example of how to work to obtaining such an answer. Would love a lower level of explanation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.181.52.53 (talk) 19:50, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

This is not the right place to ask such a question. Talk pages are to be used to discuss improvements to the article in question. For questions like yours, please see Wikipedia:Reference_desk/Mathematics. RobHar (talk) 03:19, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Rename to Finitely generated abelian group?[edit]

Surely the hyphen in the title is not appropriate? The word finitely is unambiguously an adverb, and is thus grammatically tied to the verb already. A hyphen would only be appropriate if some looser binding was grammatically possible. I see that there has been a back-and-forth renaming on this before, but I don't see any motivation or discussion. — Quondum 10:16, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

I see that WP:HYPHEN unambiguously supports my position (A hyphen is not used after a standard -ly adverb), and that the perpetrator was recently rapped on the knuckles for a related issue. Would anyone volunteer to do the move (there's a sequence, I'm not familiar with it and will probably bungle it)? — Quondum 10:56, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
