Title:

On a Class of Finite Inseparable p-groups

Abstract:

A finite group is inseparable if it does not split over any proper nontrivial normal subgroup; that is, if it has no nontrivial semidirect product decompositions. This paper investigates a class of finite inseparable p-groups and, for p  3, establishes a necessary and sufficient condition for inseparability.
