Example text

There is one exception: the elementary abelian group of order 9. The proof employs an extension procedure relying on the FeitThompson theorem. It would be desirable to have a proof avoiding this reference. Otherwise there is little hope to extend the result to infinite 2'-groups (groups without elements of order 2). We remark that for infinite 2'-groups G having a good generating set, there is a tournament T representing G such that Aut T has two orbits only [BI 79]. In the general case (no good generating sets) we don't know whether a finite bound on the number of orbits can be achieved.
