Title: A chain of normalizers in the Sylow 2-subgroup of Sym(2^n).

Abstract: The normalizer of a regular elementary abelian 2-subgroup in the symmetric group Sym(2^n) is the affine group AGL(2^n). Due to some questions arising from differential cryptanalysis of block cyphers, we started studying the normalizer chain in Sym(2^n) starting from the Sylow 2-subgroup of AGL(2^n). Computational results suggested a possible connection with the sequence (a_m) of the number of partitions of minto distinct parts already studied by Euler. We could prove indeed that for ile n-2 the the base 2 logarithm index of the i-th term of the chain in the (i-1)-th one is equal to (i-2)-th term of the partial sum sequence arising from (a_m). This…
