A subgroup H of a group G is called inert if [H : H \ Hg] is finite for all g 2 G. A group is called totally inert if every subgroup is inert. Among the basic properties of inert subgroups, we prove the following. Let M be a maximal subgroup of a locally finite group G. If M is inert and abelian, then G is soluble with derived length at most 3. In particular, the given properties impose a strong restriction on the derived length of G. We also prove that, if the centralizer of every involution is inert in an infinite locally finite simple group G, then every finite set of elements of G can not be contained in a finite simple group. In a special case, this generalizes a Theorem of Belyaev-Kuzucuoæglu-Seğckin, which proves that there exists no infinite locally finite totally inert simple group.

Let p be a prime and G a locally finite group containing an elementary abelian p-subgroup A of rank at least 3 such that C-G(A) is Chernikov and C-G(a) involves no infinite simple groups for any a is an element of A(#). We show that G is almost locally soluble (Theorem 1.1). The key step in the proof is the following characterization of PSLp(k): An infinite simple locally finite group G admits an elementary abelian p-group of automorphisms A such that C-G(A) is Chernikov and C-G(A) Keywords: involves no inf...
NILPOTENT LENGTH OF A FINITE SOLVABLE GROUP WITH A FROBENIUS GROUP OF AUTOMORPHISMS

We prove that a finite solvable group G admitting a Frobenius group FH of automorphisms of coprime order with kernel F and complement H such that [G, F] = G and C-CG(F) (h) = 1 for all nonidentity elements h is an element of H, is of nilpotent length equal to the nilpotent length of the subgroup of fixed points of H.

We show that the twist subgroup of the mapping class group of a closed connected nonorientable surface of genus g >= 13 can be generated by two involutions and an element of order g or g -1 depending on whether 9 is odd or even respectively.
Centralizers of finite subgroups in Hall's universal group
Kegel, Otto H.; Kuzucuoğlu, Mahmut (2017-01-01)
The structure of the centralizers of elements and finite abelian subgroups in Hall's universal group is studied by B. Hartley by using the property of existential closed structure of Hall's universal group in the class of locally finite groups. The structure of the centralizers of arbitrary finite subgroups were an open question for a long time. Here by using basic group theory and the construction of P. Hall we give a complete description of the structure of centralizers of arbitrary finite subgroups in Ha...
Invariant subspaces for Banach space operators with an annular spectral set
Yavuz, Onur (2008-01-01)
Consider an annulus Omega = {z epsilon C : r(0) 0 such that parallel to p(T)parallel to <= K sup{vertical bar p(lambda)vertical bar : vertical bar lambda vertical bar <= 1} and parallel to p(r(0)T(-1))parallel to <= K sup{vertical bar p(lambda)vertical bar : vertical bar lambda vertical bar <= 1} for all polynomials p. Then there exists a nontrivial common invariant subspace for T* and T*(-1).
