Non-simplicity of locally finite barely transitive groups

We answer the following questions negatively: Does there exist a simple locally finite barely transitive group (LFBT-group)? More precisely we have: There exists no simple LFBT-group. We also deal with the question, whether there exists a LFBT-group G acting on an infinite set Omega so that G is a group of finitary permutations on Omega. Along this direction we prove: If there exists a finitary LFBT-group G, then G is a minimal non-FC p-group. Moreover we prove that: If a stabilizer of a point in a LFBT-group G is abelian, then G is metabelian. Furthermore G is a p-group for some prime p, G/G' congruent to C-p infinity and G' is an abelian group of finite exponent.


Noncomplex smooth 4-manifolds with Lefschetz fibrations
Korkmaz, Mustafa (2001-01-01)
For every integer g ≥ 2 there exist infinitely many pairwise nonhomeomorphic smooth 4-manifolds admitting genus-g Lefschetz fibration over S2 but not carrying any complex structure. This extends a recent result of Ozbagci and Stipsicz.
On a Fitting length conjecture without the coprimeness condition
Ercan, Gülin (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-08-01)
Let A be a finite nilpotent group acting fixed point freely by automorphisms on the finite solvable group G. It is conjectured that the Fitting length of G is bounded by the number of primes dividing the order of A, counted with multiplicities. The main result of this paper shows that the conjecture is true in the case where A is cyclic of order p (n) q, for prime numbers p and q coprime to 6 and G has abelian Sylow 2-subgroups.
On entire rational maps of real surfaces
Ozan, Yıldıray (The Korean Mathematical Society, 2002-01-01)
In this paper, we define for a component X-0 of a nonsingular compact real algebraic surface X the complex genus of X-0, denoted by g(C)(X-0), and use this to prove the nonexistence of nonzero degree entire rational maps f : X-0 --> Y provided that g(C)(Y) > g(C)(X-0), analogously to the topological category. We construct connected real surfaces of arbitrary topological genus with zero complex genus.
Class groups of dihedral extensions
Lemmermeyer, F (Wiley, 2005-01-01)
Let L/F be a dihedral extension of degree 2p, where p is an odd prime. Let KIF and k/F be subextensions of L/F with degrees p and 2, respectively. Then we will study relations between the p-ranks of the class groups Cl(K) and Cl(k).
Chirality of real non-singular cubic fourfolds and their pure deformation classification
Finashin, Sergey (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-02-22)
In our previous works we have classified real non-singular cubic hypersurfaces in the 5-dimensional projective space up to equivalence that includes both real projective transformations and continuous variations of coefficients preserving the hypersurface non-singular. Here, we perform a finer classification giving a full answer to the chirality problem: which of real non-singular cubic hypersurfaces can not be continuously deformed to their mirror reflection.
