# Normal rank two Sylow subgroup for least prime divisor has normal complement if the prime is odd

This article states and (possibly) proves a fact that is true for certain kinds of odd-order groups. The analogous statement is not in general true for groups of even order.

This article describes a result about finite groups where the isomorphism types of the Sylow subgroup (?)s implies certain properties of the whole group. Note that all $p$-Sylow subgroups for a given prime $p$ are conjugate and hence are isomorphic, so the statement makes sense.

This article gives the statement, and possibly proof, of a normal p-complement theorem: necessary and/or sufficient conditions for the existence of a Normal p-complement (?). In other words, it gives necessary and/or sufficient conditions for a given finite group to be a P-nilpotent group (?) for some prime number $p$.

## Statement

Suppose $G$ is a finite group, and $p$ is the least prime divisor of the order of $G$. Suppose $P$ is a $p$-Sylow subgroup of $G$ and the normal rank of $P$ is at most two. Suppose further that $p$ is odd. Then, there exists a normal p-complement in $G$. In other words, there exists a normal subgroup $N$ of $G$ that is a permutable complement to $P$. Thus, $G$ is a P-nilpotent group (?).
