On non-periodic groups whose finitely generated subgroups are either permutable or pronormal. (English) Zbl 1264.20029

A subgroup \(X\) of a group \(G\) is called pronormal if the subgroups \(X\) and \(X^g\) are conjugate in \(\langle X,X^g\rangle\) for each element \(g\) of \(G\). Moreover, the subgroup \(X\) is said to be permutable if \(XH=HX\) for all subgroups \(H\) of \(G\). In a previous paper [Asian-Eur. J. Math. 4, No. 3, 459-473 (2011; Zbl 1256.20038)] the authors described locally finite groups in which every finite subgroup is either pronormal or permutable. In the paper under review, it is proved that if \(G\) is a non-periodic generalized radical group in which every finitely generated subgroup is either pronormal or permutable, then all subgroups of \(G\) are permutable. Here, a group \(G\) is said to be generalized radical if it has an ascending (normal) series whose factors are either locally nilpotent or locally finite.
