Solubility of the General Linear Group

  1. Nov 23, 2008 #1
    I am interested, in particular, why GL_2(3) (or in other notation GL(2,3)) is soluble. Can anyone explain why or recommend a text book with a pretty proof. Thank you sincerely.

    This follows from http://planetmath.org/encyclopedia/BurnsidePQTheorem.html [Broken].
