Centralizer Near-Rings Determined by End g

Part of the Mathematics and Its Applications book series (MAIA, volume 336)


Let G be a group. The structure of the centralizer near-ring M E (G) = {f: GG | fσ = σf for every σ ∈ End G} is investigated for the cases in which G is a finitely generated abelian, characteristically simple, symmetric or generalized quaternion group.
