An update for the current 19th edition of “Kourovka Notebook (Unsolved Problems in Group Theory)” is posted. A few new solutions and new references appear, both for problems from the latest section and from the previous ones. (But of course many problems remain very much open:-).) Recall that “Kourovka Notebook” is…

## New applications of Lie ring methods 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) succeeded in applying two different Lie ring methods in the study of profinite groups with automorphisms whose fixed points satisfy generalized Engel conditions. The results have just been submitted as a paper “On…
