A note on the local nilpotence of 4-Engel groups

Traustason, Gunnar LU (2005) In International Journal of Algebra and Computation 15(4). p.757-764
Abstract
Recently Havas and Vaughan-Lee proved that 4-Engel groups axe locally nilpotent. Their proof relies on the fact that a certain 4-Engel group T is nilpotent and this they prove using a computer and the Knuth-Bendix algorithm. In this paper we give a short handproof of the nilpotency of T.
