ABSTRACT:
A subgroup H of a group G is said to be weakly Sylow permutable in G if HP=PH for all Sylow subgroups P of G and all primes p dividing orders of elements of H. Otto Kegel proved that if G is finite, then H is subnormal in G. This does not hold for infinite groups. The Seriality Problem is whether Kegel’s theorem can be extended to locally finite groups if “subnormal” is replaced by “serial”. I will discuss the background to the problem and recent progress towards its solution.
