## Abstract

Let $\sigma =\{\sigma_{i} | i\in I\}$ be some partition of the set $\mathbb P$ of all primes, and let $G$ be a finite group. A chief factor $H/K$ of $G$ is said to be $\sigma$-*central* (in $G$) if the semidirect product $(H/K) \rtimes (G/C_{G}(H/K))$ is a $\sigma _{i}$-group for some $i=i(H/K)$; otherwise, it is called $\sigma$-*eccentric* (in $G$). We say that $G$ is: $\sigma$-*nilpotent* if every chief factor of $G$ is $\sigma$-central; $\sigma$-*quasinilpotent* if for every $\sigma$-eccentric chief factor $H/K$ of $G$, every automorphism of $H/K$ induced by an element of $G$ is inner. The product of all normal $\sigma$-nilpotent (respectively $\sigma$-quasinilpotent) subgroups of $G$ is said to be the $\sigma$-*Fitting subgroup* (respectively the *generalized* $\sigma$-*Fitting subgroup*) of $G$ and we denote it by $F_{\sigma}(G)$ (respectively by $F^{*}_{\sigma}(G)$). Our main goal here is to study the relations between the subgroups $F_{\sigma}(G)$ and $F^{*}_{\sigma}(G)$, and the influence of these two subgroups on the structure of $G$.
