China Math.</em>, <strong>56</strong> (2013) 213--219.] classified the connected normal edge transitive and \$frac{1}{2}-\$arc-transitive Cayley graph of groups of order \$4p\$. In this paper we continue this work by classifying the connected Cayley graph of groups of order \$2pq\$, \$p > q\$ are primes. As a consequence it is proved that \$Cay(G,S)\$ is a \$frac{1}{2}-\$arc-transitive Cayley graph of order \$2pq\$, \$p > q\$ if and only if \$|S|\$ is an even integer greater than 2, \$S = T cup T^{-1}\$ and \$T subseteq { cb^ja^{i} | 0 leq i leq p - 1}\$, \$1 leq j leq q-1\$, such that \$T\$ and \$T^{-1}\$ are orbits of \$Aut(G,S)\$ and<br /><br />\$G ≅ < a, b, c  |  a^p = b^q = c^2 = e, ac = ca, bc = cb, b^{-1}ab = a^r >\$,  or<br /><br />\$G ≅ < a, b, c  |  a^p = b^q = c^2 = e, c ac = a^{-1}, bc = cb, b^{-1}ab = a^r >\$, <br />where \$r^q equiv 1  (mod p)\$.<br />  https://ijgt.ui.ac.ir/article_6537_5d2a53752a30743d1750e751249611aa.pdf

Rowley and D. Ward, On \$pi\$-Product Involution Graphs in Symmetric<br />Groups. MIMS ePrint, 2014).<br /> <br />One natural generalisation of this to \$p\$-elements is to consider when two conjugate \$p\$-elements generate a wreath product of two cyclic groups of order \$p\$. In this paper we give necessary and sufficient conditions for this in the case that our \$p\$-elements have full support. These conditions relate to given matrices that are of circulant or permutation type, and corresponding polynomials that represent these matrices. We also consider the case that the elements do not have full support, and see why generalising our results to such elements would not be a natural generalisation. https://ijgt.ui.ac.ir/article_7806_bfc28ccc08ce7146719a30a4144af76b.pdf

It is well-known that the best upper bound for \$Pr(G)\$ is \$frac{5}{8}\$ for a finite non--abelian group \$G\$. In this paper, we will define the same concept for a finite non--abelian textit{Moufang loop} \$M\$ and try to give a best upper bound for \$Pr(M)\$. We will prove that for a well-known class of finite Moufang loops, named textit{Chein loops}, and its modifications, this best upper bound is \$frac{23}{32}\$. So, our conjecture is that for any finite Moufang loop \$M\$, \$Pr(M)leq frac{23}{32}\$. Also, we will obtain some results related to the \$Pr(M)\$ and ask the similar questions raised and answered in group theory about the relations between the structure of a finite group and its commutativity degree in finite Moufang loops. https://ijgt.ui.ac.ir/article_8477_94d05d230f23cf1b5b857c0b3c5bdd37.pdf

This is a generalization of the familiar property of being an \$FC\$-group. De Falco et al. (respectively, de Giovanni and Trombetti) studied groups whose proper subgroups of infinite rank have finite (respectively, polycyclic) conjugacy classes. Here we consider groups whose proper subgroups of infinite rank are \$(PF)C\$-groups and we prove that if \$G\$ is a group of infinite rank having a non-trivial finite or abelian factor group and if all proper subgroups of \$G\$ of infinite rank are \$(PF)C\$-groups, then so is \$G\$. We prove also that if \$G\$ is a locally soluble-by-finite group of infinite rank which has no simple homomorphic images of infinite rank and whose proper subgroups of infinite rank are \$(PF)C\$-groups, then so are all proper subgroups of \$G\$. https://ijgt.ui.ac.ir/article_8776_ca0b92d4179fde3b3ca79f8b4a3ed6ce.pdf
