Small, nm-stable compact G-groups

Submission date: 29 June 2010.


We prove that if (H,G) is a small, nm-stable compact G-group, then H is nilpotent-by-finite, and if additionally \NM(H) \leq \omega, then H is abelian-by-finite. Both results are significant steps towards the proof of the conjecture that each small, nm-stable compact G-group is abelian-by-finite. We give examples of small, nm-stable compact G-groups of infinite ordinal \NM-rank, providing counter-examples to the \NM-gap conjecture.
