Faculty of Mathematics, "Al. I. Cuza" University


In this paper we provide explicit formulas for the number of elements/subgroups/cyclic subgroups of a given order and for the total number of subgroups/cyclic subgroups in a finite Hamiltonian group. The coverings with three proper subgroups and the principal series of such a group are also counted. Finally, we give a complete description of the lattice of characteristic subgroups of a finite Hamiltonian group.
