Abstract

First, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for a torsion-free rank-one subgroup of an arbitrary abelian group to be purifiable in a given group and show that all pure hulls of a purifiable torsion-free rank-one subgroup are isomorphic. Next, we show that if a $T(G)$-high subgroup A of an abelian group $G$ is purifiable in $G$, then there exists a subgroup $T'$ of $T(G)$ such that $G=H\oplus T'$ for every pure hull $H$ of $A$ in $G$. An abelian group $G$ is said to be a strongly ADE decomposable group if there exists a purifiable $T(G)$-high subgroup of $G$. We present an example $G$ such that not all $T(G)$-high subgroups of a strongly ADE decomposable group G are purifiable in $G$. Moreover, we characterize the strongly ADE decomposable groups of torsion-free rank 1. Finally, we use previous results to give a necessary and sufficient condition for an abelian group of torsion-free rank 1 to be splitting.
