Let $G$ be
a group and $x$Î G.
If $x$ is
inverted by an involution $i$ of $G$, i.e., $xi=x$-1, then the
element $x$
is called *strongly real*.
A group consisting of only strongly real elements is called
*strongly real*.
In this paper, we study the disposition of strongly real elements in
a finite group and the existence of elements that are not
strongly real in connection with problems 14.69 and 14.82 from "The
Kourovka Notebook." For the proofs of the theorems, algorithms are
created and implemented in the computer algebra system GAP4r3.
They can also be applied for some other finite groups.
