" On Finite Groups with Solvable Centralizers
Abstract: It is an old problem from the Kourovka Notebook which asks for description of the finite groups with solvable centralizers of involutions. In this talk we will first give a survey of results regarding this problem. We will prove that when the solvable radical is nilpotent of odd order, these groups are p-constrained for the primes p dividing the order of the solvable radical. We will also describe the structure of the groups in question under this assumption. This is an ongoing joint work with Kıvanç Ersoy.
