## Abstract

Suppose that a finite group $G$ admits an automorphism $\f$ of order $2^n$ such that the fixed-point subgroup $C_G(\f ^{2^{n-1}})$ of the involution $\f ^{2^{n-1}}$ is nilpotent of class $c$. Let $m=|C_G(\f )|$ be the number of fixed points of $\f$. It is proved that $G$ has a soluble subgroup of derived length bounded in terms of $n,c$ whose index is bounded in terms of $m,n,c$. A similar result is also proved for Lie rings.
