Zassenhaus conjecture for \(S_ 5\). (English) Zbl 0729.16021

This is a continuation of an article by I. B. S. Passi and the first author [cf. Proc. Indian Acad. Sci., Math. Sci. 99, 1-5 (1989; Zbl 0678.16008)]. Performing very carefully more or less direct computations, the authors succeed in showing that every unit of \(ZS_ 5\) of one of the orders 2, 4, 6 is conjugate, under a unit of \(QS_ 5\), to an element of the symmetric group \(S_ 5\) itself.
