On two questions from the Kourovka Notebook

J. Algebra, 499:438-449, 2018


The aim of this paper is to give answers to some questions concerning intersections of system normalisers and prefrattini subgroups of finite soluble groups raised by the third author, Shemetkov and Vasil’ev in the Kourovka Notebook [10]. Our approach depends on results on regular orbits and it can be also used to extend a result of Mann [9] concerning intersections of injectors associated to Fitting classes.

Generalised norms in finite soluble groups

J. Algebra, 402, 392-405 (2014)

Abstract: We give a framework for a number of generalisations of Baer’s norm that have appeared recently. For a class C of finite nilpotent groups we define the C-norm κC(G) of a finite group G to be the intersection of the normalisers of the subgroups of G that are not in C. We show that those groups for which the C-norm is not hypercentral have a very restricted structure. The non-nilpotent groups G for which G = κC (G) have been classified for some classes. We give a classification for nilpotent classes closed under subgroups, quotients and direct products of groups of coprime order and show the known classifications can be deduced from our classification.
