Primitive groups and PST-groups

Bull. Aust. Math. Soc., 89 (2014), 373–378


All groups considered in this paper are finite. A subgroup H of a group G is called a primitive subgroup if it is a proper subgroup in the intersection of all subgroups of G containing H as a proper subgroup. He et al. [‘A note on primitive subgroups of finite groups’, Commun. Korean Math. Soc. 28(1) (2013), 55–62] proved that every primitive subgroup of G has index a power of a prime if and only if G/Φ(G) is a solvable PST-group. Let X denote the class of groups G all of whose primitive subgroups have prime power index. It is established here that a group G is a solvable PST-group if and only if every subgroup of G is an X-group.
