The main result reads as follows: Let \(G\) be a finite group of rank \(r\), let \(\varphi\) be an automorphism, and let \(|C_G(\varphi)|=m\). Then there is a \(\varphi\)-invariant nilpotent subgroup \(H\) and the index \(G:H\) is an \((r,m)\)-bounded number and the nilpotency class of \(H\) is an \(r\)-bounded number. If \(m=1\) then the group \(G\) is a nilpotent group of \(r\)-bounded nilpotency class.
