# The hypercentre and the $n$-centre of the unit group of an integral group ring

In this paper, we first show that the central height of the unit group of the integral group ring of a periodic group is at most $2$. We then give a complete characterization of the $n$-centre of that unit group. The $n$-centre of the unit group is either the centre or the second centre (for $n \geq 2$).
