title = "Abelian sylow subgroups in a finite group",

abstract = "Let p ≠ 3, 5 be a prime. We prove that Sylow p-subgroups of a finite group G are abelian if and only if the class sizes of the p-elements of G are all coprime to p. This gives a solution to a problem posed by R. Brauer in 1956 (for p ≠ 3, 5).",
