Groups admitting a fixed-point-free automorphism of order 2n

Fletcher Gross

Vol. 24 (1968), No. 2, 269–275
Abstract

Let G be a finite solvable group which admits a fixedpoint-free automorphism of order 2n. The main result of this paper is that the nilpotent length of G is at most 2n 2 for n 2. This is an improvement on earlier results in that no assumptions are made regarding the Sylow subgroups of G.
