The 1st identify within the Elite devices sequence to house an American bombardment crew, this identify makes a speciality of the 303rd BG, dubbed the 'Hells Angels.' one of many first actual B-17 devices assigned to the newly created 8th Air strength in England in September 1942, the 303rd was once within the forefront of the sunlight bombing crusade via to VE-Day. provided a unique Unit quotation in January 1944, the 303rd additionally had of its aircrewmen provided with the Medal of Honor, Americas final army ornament. Brian O Neill brings the group's vibrant wrestle background to lifestyles with a mixture of first-hand debts, uncooked facts and concise challenge narrative.

For a group G, denote by δ + (G) the subgroup generated by the torsion elements g ∈ G which have only ﬁnitely many conjugates in G. Recall (see [Pas77b]) that 30 1 Lower Central Series (i) δ + (G) is a locally ﬁnite normal subgroup of G; (ii) δ + (G) = 1 if and only if G does not contain a nontrivial ﬁnite normal subgroup. An ideal I in the group algebra k[G], where k is a ﬁeld, is said to be controlled by a normal subgroup H of G if I = (k[H] ∩ I)k[G]. α = 0}. Observe that if a k[G]-module M embeds in a free k[G]-module, then Annk[G] (M ) is an annihilator ideal in k[G].

Then, for arbitrary derivations D1 , . . 29) where : Z[F ] → Z is the augmentation map. Since F is residually nilpotent, there exists an integer c ≥ 1 such that R ⊆ γc (F ) but R ⊆ γc+1 (F ). Let r ∈ γi (R), s ∈ γj (R), i + j = n. Then, for arbitrary derivations, D1 , . . , Dc(n−1)+1 : Z[F ] → Z[F ], we have αDc(n−1)+1 · · · D1 ([r, s]) = Dci · · · D1 (r)αDc(n−1)+1 · · · Dci+1 (s) − Dcj · · · D1 (s)αDc(n−1)+1 · · · Dcj+1 (r). 30) 32 1 Lower Central Series For all natural numbers n, we have a monomorphism θn : γn (R)/γn+1 (R) → frn−1 /frn , rγn+1 (R) → r − 1 + frn , r ∈ γn (R) of right G-modules.

The study of such modules is of interest; for, observe that if F is a free R∩S group and R = S, then [R, S] is a relation module for the group F/R and for S = γn (R), n > 1, these modules are the higher relation modules. From the 18 1 Lower Central Series R∩S preceding discussion it is clear that the faithfulness of [R, S] is related to the residual nilpotence of F/RS. 35 Let R and S be normal subgroups of a free group F such that F/[R, S] is residually nilpotent. Let G = F/RS. (i) If R∩S [R, S] is a faithful Z[G]-module, then gω = 0.
