Abstract: If $ G$ is an additive abelian group, $ S$ is a subset of $ G,M$ is a set of nonzero integers, and if each element of $ G\backslash \left\{ 0 \right\}$ is uniquely expressible in the form $ ms$, where $ m \in M$ and $ s \in S$, then we say that $ M$ splits $ G$. A splitting is nonsingular if every element of $ M$ is relatively prime to the order of $ G$; otherwise it is singular. In this paper we discuss the singular splittings of cyclic groups of prime power orders and the direct sum of isomorphic copies of groups.
