A remark on products of locally soluble groups. (English) Zbl 0543.20024
It is shown that if a group G is a product of two normal subgroups, each of which is locally soluble-of-finite-rank, then G is locally soluble if and only if it is locally of finite rank. Thus a group that is locally soluble or locally of finite rank has a unique maximal locally soluble- of-finite-rank normal subgroup.
