By Karel Dekimpe

Ranging from easy wisdom of nilpotent (Lie) teams, an algebraic thought of almost-Bieberbach teams, the basic teams of infra-nilmanifolds, is constructed. those are a average generalization of the well-known Bieberbach teams and plenty of effects approximately traditional Bieberbach teams prove to generalize to the almost-Bieberbach teams. in addition, utilizing affine representations, specific cohomology computations could be performed, or leading to a type of the almost-Bieberbach teams in low dimensions. the concept that of a polynomial constitution, another for the affine constructions that usually fail, is brought.

We look for all extensions of E / Z by Z which give rise to a group containing N as the maximal nilpotent normal subgroup. Since Z is central in N , the action of E / Z on Z factors through F. Consequently there are only finitely m a n y E / z - m o d u l e structures ~ : E / Z ~ Ant Z to consider. For each of 24 Chapter 2: Infra-nilmanifolds and A B - g r o u p s them, there is a restriction morphism res: H 2 ( E / z , Z ) ~ H 2 ( N / z , Z). An extension < E > in H ~2( E / z , Z) will contain N as maximal nilpotent normal subgroup if and only if its restriction res (< E >) determines a group which is isomorphic to N.

It is normal in E , since it is characteristic in another normal subgroup (CE,E). 8). If E is not normal in E', we replace E ' by the normalizer NE,E of E in E ~. Since CE, E C NE,E we m a y apply the theorem for normal E to conclude the correctness of the theorem in the general case too. 6 If T(CE,E ) is finite, it is the maximal finite normal subgroup of E ~. g. always the case when E ~ is a polycyclic-by-finite group (see the following section). This observation will be used in the following section.

We also show how they can be seen as a generalization from the topological point of view. But let us first examine the almost torsion free groups algebraically. 4 41 The closure of the Fitting subgroup In this section we will define a normal subgroup Fitt (F) of F, which contains the Fitting subgroup of F as a normal subgroup of finite index. In fact we take the maximal one with this property. 1 The closure of Fitt (F) is denoted by Fitt (F) and satisfies Fitt (F) = < GIIG <~F and [G: Fitt (G)] < oo > .
