Document Type : Research Paper


Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Urbana, IL, 61801, USA.


‎The effect of restricting the set of primes dividing the orders of the finite quotients of a group is investigated‎. ‎Particular attention is paid to abelian‎, ‎soluble‎, ‎locally soluble and locally finite groups‎. ‎The connection with the extraction of roots is explored‎.
