Algorithms for permutability in finite groups

Cent. Eur. J. Math., 11 (11), 1914-1922 (2013).

Abstract: In this paper we describe some algorithms to identify permutable and Sylow-permutable subgroups of finite groups, Dedekind and Iwasawa finite groups, and finite T-groups (groups in which normality is transitive), PT-groups (groups in which permutability is transitive), and PST-groups (groups in which Sylow permutability is transitive). These algorithms have been implemented in a package for the computer algebra system GAP.

Keywords:  Finite group • Permutable subgroup • S-permutable subgroup • Dedekind group • Iwasawa group • T-group • PT-group • PST-group • Algorithm

Primitive groups and PST-groups

Bull. Aust. Math. Soc.


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.

Graphs and classes of finite groups

Note Mat., 33 (1), 89-94 (2013)

Abstract. There are different ways to associate to a finite group a certain graph. An interesting question is to analyse the relations between the structure of the group, given in group-theoretical terms, and the structure of the graph, given in the language of graph theory. This survey paper presents some contributions to this research line.
