New results on automorphisms of profinite groups in a joint work of Lincoln and Brasilia algebraists

Originally posted on Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra:
In a new joint work, Evgeny Khukhro (Lincoln) and Pavel Shumyatsky (University of Brasilia) obtained new results on profinite groups with automorphisms whose fixed points satisfy generalized Engel conditions. The results have just been submitted as a paper “Profinite groups with an automorphism of prime order whose…
