Abstract

Let g and h be arbitrary elements of a given finite group G. Then g and h are said to be autoconjugate if there exists some automorphism α of G such that h = gα. In this article, we construct some sharp bounds for the probability that two random elements of G are autoconjugate, denoted by \(\mathcal {P}_{a}(G)\). It is also shown that \(\mathcal {P}_{a}(G)|G|\) depends only on the autoisoclinism class of G.
