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 above in terms of |H| and the rank of the fixed-point subgroup C (G) (H), and that |G| is bounded above in terms of |H| and |C (G) (H)|. As a corollary, in the case where G is an arbitrary finite group estimates are obtained of the form |G| a parts per thousand currency sign|C (G) (F)| center dot f(|H|, |C (G) (H)|) for the order, and r(G) a parts per thousand currency sign r(C (G) (F)) + g(|H|, r(C (G) (H))) for the rank, where f and g are some functions of two variables.

Frobenius-like groups as groups of automorphisms
Ercan, Gülin; Khukhro, Evgeny (2014-01-01)
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]. 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 rela...
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...
The Influence of some embedding properties of subgroups on the structure of a finite group
Kızmaz, Muhammet Yasir; Ercan, Gülin; Department of Mathematics (2018)
In a finite group $G$, a subgroup $H$ is called a $TI$-subgroup if $H$ intersects trivially with distinct conjugates of itself. Suppose that $H$ is a Hall $pi$-subgroup of $G$ which is also a $TI$-subgroup. A famous theorem of Frobenius states that $G$ has a normal $pi$-complement whenever $H$ is self normalizing. In this case, $H$ is called a Frobenius complement and $G$ is said to be a Frobenius group. A first main result in this thesis is the following generalization of Frobenius' Theorem. textbf{Theorem...
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.
Prime graphs of solvable groups
Ulvi , Muhammed İkbal; Ercan, Gülin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020-8)
If $G$ is a finite group, its prime graph $Gamma_G$ is constructed as follows: the vertices are the primes dividing the order of $G$, two vertices $p$ and $q$ are joined by an edge if and only if $G$ contains an element of order $pq$. This thesis is mainly a survey that gives some important results on the prime graphs of solvable groups by presenting their proofs in full detail.
