On connected transversals to abelian subgroups in finite groups. (English) Zbl 0793.20064

The authors continue the study of group-theoretical properties of multiplication groups of loops [begun in J. Algebra 135, No. 1, 112-122 (1990; Zbl 0706.20046)]. Applying the results to loop theory they prove that if the inner mapping group of a loop \(Q\) is abelian and of prime power order then \(Q\) is centrally nilpotent.
