Abstract: We characterize the lattices of all subgroups of finite Abelian $p$-groups and, more generally, submodules of finitely generated modules over completely primary uniserial rings. This is based on a complete isomorphism invariant for such lattices.

Keywords: primary Arguesian lattice, completely primary uniserial ring, gluing of lattices.

Classification (MSC2000): 06C05, 16P20
