Subnormal $p$-Subgroup, Layer, Fitting & Radical Subgroups

I am self-studying a class note on finite group and come across a problem like this:

Let $G$ be a dihedral group of order 30. Determine $O_2(G),O_3(G),O_5(G), E(G),F(G)$ and $R(G).$

Where $O_p(G)$ is the subgroup generated by all subnormal p-subgroups of $G$; $E(G)$ is the layer subgroup $G$; $F(G)$ is the fitting subgroup of $G$ and $R(G) := E(G)F(G)$ is the radical subgroup of $G.$

The text does not offers much help in solving the problem except a parade of lemmas, corollaries and theorems, one of them I believe is relevant:

LEMMA: Let $p$ be a prime, then (i) $O_p(G)$ is the uniquely determined largest normal p-subgroup of $G$; (ii) $O_p(G)$ is the intersection of all Sylow p-subgroups of $G.$

I would love to hear any helps, hints or links to solve the problem. If you have a choice of between a slick-elegant solution versus a down-to-earth dummy one, do please give the latter - you have a turtle not a rabbit over here :-) Thank you for all your times and help.

I am not giving up with this problem yet! Let's focus on determining $O_2(G),O_3(G),O_5(G)$ first, hopefully from them I will get hints for solving the next parts of question. Here are my attempts so far:

(1) Observe the above LEMMA (ii) that says $O_p(G)$ is the intersection of all Sylow p-subgroups of $G,$ meaning that $O_2(G), O_3(G)$, and $O_5(G)$ are the intersections of subgroups of respectively $Syl_2(G), Syl_3(G)$ and $Syl_5(G)$.

(2) Suppose that the number of $Syl_p(G)$ in $G$ is denoted by $n_p$, and the order of $|Syl_p(G)|:=o_p.$ I can provide computation leading to conclusion that $n_2=\{1,3,5\}$, $n_3=\{1\}$, $n_5=\{1\}$ and $o_2 = 2, o_3 = 3, o_5 = 5.$ All are cyclic since the orders are primes.

(3) ...

Unfortunately I don't know what is next after line (2), nor do I know if I have been on the right direction. I would therefore love to get help from you. Thank you very much for your time and help.

See complete solution below through helps from "jbunniii" of Physics Forum. Thanks to all who have been helping me.

• So, let's start with $O_2$ then? What do Sylow 2-subgroups look like? What's their intersection? – Myself Dec 27 '14 at 0:08
• Hints: It should be stated somewhere that $F(G)$ is the (unique) largest nilpotent normal subgroup of $G$. Your dihedral group has a very large nilpotent normal subgroup Also, $E(G)$ is not solvable when $E(G) \neq 1$ (for any group $G$). – Geoff Robinson Dec 27 '14 at 1:56
• More people would see your question if you gave it the "group-theory" tag. – Derek Holt Dec 28 '14 at 17:02
• @DerekHolt : Just add Group Theory tag, thanks for reminding me. – Amanda.M Dec 28 '14 at 23:30

After days of research, I am very happy to finally be able to put together a solution for this question. But to all fairness, I did not do it all by myself -- I got tremendous line-by-line helps from "jbunniii" at Physics Forum here. If this solution is a bouquet, all stems and flowers should go to "jbunniii" while I claim only the small tiny string that binds them together. However, any mistakes herein should be blamed on me alone.

For solution to this question, I will rely on the following lemmas from my class notes:

(a) The group $O_p(G)$ is the intersection of all Sylow p-subgroups of $G$;
(b) $[E(G), F(G)] = \{1\}$, where $E(G)$ and $F(G)$ are respectively the Layer and Fitting of $G$;
(c) $E(G) \lhd G$.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(A) FINDING $O_2(G):$
(1) Suppose that the number of $Syl_p(G)$ subgroup in $G$ is denoted by $n_p$ and the order of subgroup $Syl_p(G)$ by $o_p$;
(2) Here $|G| = 30 = 2 \cdot 3 \cdot 5$, implying that $G$ is a dihedral of 15-gon $D_{15}$;
(3) Per Sylow's Theorems, $n_2 \equiv 1 \pmod 2, n_2 \mid 15$ and $o_2 = 2.$ Therefore $n_2 = \{1, 3, 5, 15 \}$;
(4) Recall that $G = D_{15} = \{r^0, r^1, r^2 \ldots r^{14}, s^0, s^1, s^2 \ldots s^{14} \}$ where $r$ and $s$ stand for rotation and reflection respectively. Also observe that $r^{15} = s^2 = 1$ and $rs = sr^{-1}$;
(5) Since $o_2 = 2$ therefore $Syl_2(G)$ is cyclic and its elements must have order of 2;
(6) Of all elements of $D_{15}$, we observe that for $k = \{ 1, 2, \ldots 15 \}$, $r^ks$ is the only element that has order of 2, this is because $(r^ks)^2 = (r^ks)(r^ks) = (sr^{-k})(r^ks) = s^2 = 1$;
(7) Therefore of $n_2 = \{1, 3, 5, 15\}$, it has to be $n_2 = 15$ only because $k = \{ 1, 2, \ldots 15 \}$;
(8) Thus per Lemma (a) above, $O_2(G) = \bigcap _{i = 1}^{15} (Syl_2(G))_i = \{1\}$

(B) FINDING $O_3(G):$
(1) Using the same analysis, we get $n_3 = \{1, 10 \}$. However, $n_3 = 10$ is not possible since $o_3 = 3$, and $Syl_2(G), Syl_3(G)$ and $Syl_5(G)$ have to co-exist as subgroups of $G$ and $|G|= 30$. Therefore the only choice is for $n_3 = 1$;
(2) Of all elements of $D_{15}$, only $r^5$ has order 3 since $(r^5)^3 = r^{15} = 1;$
(3) Thus per Lemma (a) above, $O_3(G) = Syl_3(G) = \{1, r^5, r^{10}\}$.

(C) FINDING $O_5(G):$
(1) Again using the same analysis, we get $n_5 = \{1, 6 \}$, and the only choice is for $n_5 = 1$;
(2) Of all elements of $D_{15}$, only $r^3$ has order 5 since $(r^3)^5 = r^{15} = 1;$
(3) Thus per Lemma (a) above, $O_5(G) = Syl_5(G) = \{1, r^3, r^6,r^9,r^{12}\}$.

(D) FINDING $F(G):$
Per definition from my note, $F(G)$, the fitting subgroup, is the (complex) product of all subgroups of $O_p(G)$ with $p$ a prime number:
\begin{align*} F(G)&=O_2(G)O_3(G)O_5(G) \\ &=\{1\}\{1,r^5,r^{10}\}\{1,r^3,r^6,r^9,r^{12}\} \\ &=\{1,r^2,r^3...r^{13},r^{14}\} \end{align*}

(E) FINDING $E(G):$
We are going to use the Lemma (c) above that $E(G)\lhd G$.​ Since $G = \{1,r^1, r^2, r^3,\dots r^{14},s^0, s^1, s^3 \ldots s^{14} \}$, and since $\forall e \in E(G),\forall g \in G,eg=ge$, therefore the only possible solution would be $E(G)=\{1\}$. Observe that this fits nicely the Lemma (b) that $[E(G),F(G)]=\{1\}$.

(F) FINDING $R(G):$
Per definition from my note again, the radical of $G$: \begin{align*} R(G) :&= F(G)E(G) \\ &=\{1,r^2,r^3...r^{13},r^{14}\} \{1\} \\ &=\{1,r^2,r^3...r^{13},r^{14}\} \\ \end{align*}
