# Solvable Groups #

In this file we introduce the notion of a solvable group. We define a solvable group as one whose derived series is eventually trivial. This requires defining the commutator of two subgroups and the derived series of a group.

## Main definitions #

`derivedSeries G n`

: the`n`

th term in the derived series of`G`

, defined by iterating`general_commutator`

starting with the top subgroup`IsSolvable G`

: the group`G`

is solvable

The derived series of the group `G`

, obtained by starting from the subgroup `⊤`

and repeatedly
taking the commutator of the previous subgroup with itself for `n`

times.

A group

`G`

is solvable if its derived series is eventually trivial.

A group `G`

is solvable if its derived series is eventually trivial. We use this definition
because it's the most convenient one to work with.
