A generalization of the Davenport constant is investigated. For a finite abelian group G and a positive integer k, let Dk(G) denote the smallest ` such that each sequence over G of length at least ` has k disjoint non-empty zero-sum subsequences. For general G, expanding on known results, upper and lower bounds on these invariants are investigated and it is… CONTINUE READING
