Residual properties of Abelian groups

Abstract:
Let $\pi$ be a set of primes. For Abelian groups, the necessary and sufficient condition to be a virtually residually finite $\pi$group is obtained, as well as a characterization of potent Abelian groups. Recall that a group $G$ is said to be a residually finite $\pi$group if for every nonidentity element a of $G$ there exists a homomorphism of the group $G$ onto some finite $\pi$group such that the image of the element a differs from 1. A group $G$ is said to be a virtually residually finite $\pi$group if it contains a finite index subgroup which is a residually finite $\pi$group. Recall that an element $g$ in $G$ is said to be $\pi$radicable if g is an mth power of an element of $G$ for every positive $\pi$number $m$. Let $A$ be an Abelian group. It is well known that $A$ is a residually finite $\pi$group if and only if $A$ has no nonidentity $\pi$radicable elements. Suppose now that $\pi$ does not coincide with the set $\Pi$ of all primes. Let $\pi'$ be the complement of $\pi$ in the set $\Pi$. And let $T$ be a $\pi'$component of $A$, i.e., $T$ be a set of all elements of $A$ whose orders are finite $\pi'$numbers. We prove that the following three statements are equivalent to each other: (1) the group $A$ is a virtually residually finite $\pi$group; (2) the subgroup $T$ is finite and the quotient group $A/T$ is a residually finite $\pi$group; (3) the subgroup $T$ is finite and $T$ coincides with the set of all $\pi$radicable elements of $A$.
