Frobenius-like groups as groups of automorphisms

A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F with a nontrivial complement H such that FH/[F,F] is a Frobenius group with Frobenius kernel F/[F, F]. Such subgroups and sections are abundant in any nonnilpotent finite group. We discuss several recent results about the properties of a finite group G admitting a Frobenius-like group of automorphisms FH aiming at restrictions on G in terms of C-G(H) and focusing mainly on bounds for the Fitting height and related parameters. Earlier such results were obtained for Frobenius groups of automorphisms; new theorems for Frobenius-like groups are based on new representation-theoretic results. Apart from a brief survey, the paper contains the new theorem on almost nilpotency of a finite group admitting a Frobenius-like group of automorphisms with fixed-point-free almost extraspecial kernel.

Derived length of a Frobenius-like kernel
Ercan, Gülin; Khukhro, Evgeny (2014-08-15)
A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F called kernel which has a nontrivial complement H such that FH/[F,F] is a Frobenius group with Frobenius kernel F/[F,F]. Suppose that a Frobenius-like group FH acts faithfully by linear transformations on a vector space V over a field of characteristic that does not divide vertical bar FH vertical bar. It is proved that the derived length of the kernel F is bounded solely in terms of the dimension m = dim C-V(H...
Frobenius groups of automorphisms with almost fixed point free kernel
Ercan, Gülin (2019-03-01)
Let FH be a Frobenius group with kernel F and complement H, acting coprimely on the finite solvable group G by automorphisms. We prove that if C-G(H) is of Fitting length n then the index of the n-th Fitting subgroup F-n(G) in G is bounded in terms of vertical bar C-G(F)vertical bar and vertical bar F vertical bar. This generalizes a result of Khukhro and Makarenko [6] which handles the case n = 1.
Action of a Frobenius-like group with kernel having central derived subgroup
Ercan, Gülin (2016-09-01)
A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F with a nontrivial complement H such that [F, h] = F for all nonidentity elements h is an element of H. Suppose that a finite group G admits a Frobenius-like group of auto-morphisms FH of coprime order with [F', H] = 1. In case where C-G( F) = 1 we prove that the groups G and C-G( H) have the same nilpotent length under certain additional assumptions.
Rank and Order of a Finite Group Admitting a Frobenius-Like Group of Automorphisms
Ercan, Gülin; Khukhro, E. I. (2014-07-01)
A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F with a nontrivial complement H such that FH/[F,F] is a Frobenius group with Frobenius kernel F/[F,F]. Suppose that a finite group G admits a Frobenius-like group of automorphisms FH of coprime order with certain additional restrictions (which are satisfied, in particular, if either |FH| is odd or |H| = 2). In the case where G is a finite p-group such that G = [G, F] it is proved that the rank of G is bounded ab...

A finite group FH is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F with a nontrivial complement H such that for all nonidentity elements . Let FH be a Frobenius-like group with complement H of prime order such that is of prime order. Suppose that FH acts on a finite group G by automorphisms where in such a way that In the present paper we prove that the Fitting series of coincides with the intersections of with the Fitting series of G, and the nilpotent length of G exceeds the...
