Abstract.   A second-metacyclic finite p-group is a finite p-group which possesses a nonmetacyclic maximal subgroup, but all its subgroups of index p2 are metacyclic. In this article we determine up to isomorphism all second-metacyclic p-groups for odd primes p. There are ten such groups of order p4, for each prime p ≥ 3, and two such groups of order 35.

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification.   20D15.

Key words and phrases.   Finite group, p-group, metacyclic, second-maximal subgroup, second-metacyclic subgroup.
