A new paper by Evgeny Khukhro (Univ. of Lincoln), Pavel Shumyatsky (Univ. of Brasilia), and Gunnar Traustason (Univ. of Bath)Right Engel-type subgroups and length parameters of finite groups” has been accepted for publication in Journal of the Australian Mathematical Society. The results of this paper were partially obtained during Evgeny Khukhro’s research visit to University of Brasilia in July of 2018 (supported by a grant of CNPq-Brazil).

Abstract: Let g be an element of a finite group G and let R_{n}(g) be the subgroup generated by all the right Engel values [g,{}_{n}x] over x\in G. In the case when G is soluble we prove that if, for some n, the Fitting height of R_{n}(g) is equal to k, then g belongs to the (k+1)th Fitting subgroup F_{k+1}(G). For nonsoluble G, it is proved that if, for some n, the generalized Fitting height of R_n(g) is equal to k, then g belongs to the generalized Fitting subgroup F^*_{f(k,m)}(G) with f(k,m) depending only on k and m, where |g| is the product of m primes counting multiplicities. It is also proved that if, for some n, the nonsoluble length of R_n(g) is equal to k, then g belongs to a normal subgroup whose nonsoluble length is bounded in terms of k and m. Earlier similar generalizations of Baer’s theorem (which states that an Engel element of a finite group belongs to the Fitting subgroup) were obtained by the first two authors in terms of left Engel-type subgroups.
