Let p be a prime number. How many Abelian groups (up to isomorphism) are there of order p^100.

I don't have a more general problem, this is all I am given. Is that bad?

So if I follow what you did, would there be 100 Abelian groups? - Nov 16th 2008, 04:08 PMJhevon

by the fundamental theorem of finite abelian groups, the answer is the number of partitions of 100, which according to this website is equal to 190569292.

I do not think there is a partitions formula.

The # of partitions is a very complicated combinatorics problem.

There are ways to get them using recurrence relations and all that stuff. But as far as a formula that give you an answer it is does not exist. At least I never seen one. (Worried). I am scared!
