Finite groups with biprimary subgroups of a definite form

  • 29 Accesses


The paper studies the structure of finite groups in which, for any biprimary subgroup B, eitherl 2(B) ≤ 1 or O2(B) is a metacyclic group. As a corollary of the result obtained here and of known results of other authors, a description is adduced of finite simple groups in which the intersection of any two distinct Sylow 2-subgroups is metacyclic.
