|Abstract:||A subgroup H of a group G is pronormal if the subgroups H and Hg are conjugate in 〈H,Hg〉 for every g ∈ G. It was conjectured in  that a subgroup of a finite simple group having odd index is always pronormal. Recently the authors  verified this conjecture for all finite simple groups other than PSLn(q), PSUn(q), E6(q), 2E6(q), where in all cases q is odd and n is not a power of 2, and P Sp2n(q), where q ≡ ±3 (mod 8). However in  the authors proved that when q ≡ ±3 (mod 8) and n ≡ 0 (mod 3), the simple symplectic group P Sp2n(q) has a nonpronormal subgroup of odd index, thereby refuted the conjecture on pronormality of subgroups of odd index in finite simple groups. The natural extension of this conjecture is the problem of classifying finite nonabelian simple groups in which every subgroup of odd index is pronormal. In this paper we continue to study this problem for the simple symplectic groups P Sp2n(q) with q ≡ ±3 (mod 8) (if the last condition is not satisfied, then subgroups of odd index are pronormal). We prove that whenever n is not of the form 2m or 2m(22k+1), this group has a nonpronormal subgroup of odd index. If n = 2m, then we show that all subgroups of P Sp2n(q) of odd index are pronormal. The question of pronormality of subgroups of odd index in P Sp2n(q) is still open when n = 2m(22k + 1) and q ≡ ±3 (mod 8). © 2017, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.|
