The Finite Lamplighter Groups: A Guided Tour
Siehler, Jacob A.
College Mathematics Journal, v43 n3 p203-211 May 2012
In this article, we present a family of finite groups, which provide excellent examples of the basic concepts of group theory. To work out the center, conjuagacy classes, and commutators of these groups, all that's required is a bit of linear algebra.
