Abstract

The structure of groups which have at most two isomorphism classes of central factors ($B_2$-groups) are investigated‎. ‎A complete description of $B_2$-groups is obtained in the locally finite case and in the nilpotent case‎. ‎In addition detailed information is obtained about soluble $B_2$-groups‎. ‎Also structural information about insoluble $B_2$-groups is given‎, ‎in particular when such a group has the derived subgroup satisfying the minimal condition‎.
