Abstract

We consider the action of a p-group G on an Abelian p-group A, with the latter treated as a faithful right �,G-module. Our aim is to establish a connection between exponents of the kernels under the induced action of G on elementary p-group A-pA and Ω1 and (A) = x � A px = 0; the kernels are denoted by CG;(A/pA) and CG(Ω1(A)). respectively. It is proved that if the exponent of one of the kernels CG,(A/pA) or CG(Ω1(A)) is finite then the other also has a finite exponent bounded in terms of the first; moreover, these kernels are nilpotent. In one case we impose the � additional restriction � piA= 0. And the wreath product Cp� G of a quasicyclic group and i=1 an arbitrary p-group G shows that this condition cannot be dropped. The results obtained are used to confirm, for one particular case, the conjecture on the boundedness of a derived length of a finite group with an automorphism of order 2 all of whose fixed points are central. (The solubility of such groups, and also the reduction to the case of 2-groups, were established in 1.) © 2000 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
