On generators of crystallographic groups and actions on flat orbifolds

On generators of crystallographic groups and actions on flat orbifolds
We find new bounds on the minimal number of generators of crystallographic groups with p-group holonomy. We also show that similar bounds exist on the minimal number of generators of the abelianizations of arbitrary crystallographic groups. As a consequence, we show that this restricts the rank of elementary abelian p-groups that can act effectively on closed connected flat orbifolds.

Abstract

We find new bounds on the minimal number of generators of crystallographic groups with p-group holonomy. We also show that similar bounds exist on the minimal number of generators of the abelianizations of arbitrary crystallographic groups. As a consequence, we show that this restricts the rank of elementary abelian p-groups that can act effectively on closed connected flat orbifolds.
