  • Frattini's argument, which is generally stated for Sylow subgroups, holds for all automorph-conjugate subgroups. In particular, it holds for characteristic subgroups of Sylow subgroups. In words: if K \le L \le G are such that K is a characteristic subgroup of a Sylow subgroup of L, and L is normal in G, then G = LN_G(K).
