Hi, All:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please forgive my ignorance here: let G be an infinite group, and let H be

a subgroup of G of finite index . Does H necessarily have torsion? I can

see if , e.g., G was Abelian with G=Z^n (+) Z/m , then , say, would have

subgroups of finite index, but I can't tell if this is an iff condition.

Any Ideas?

Thanks.
