A Frobenius group is a transitive permutation group in which only the identity fixes two points. Finite Frobenius groups have a remarkable property: the elements that fix no points together with the identity form a normal subgroup. I will explain the proof of this classical result, which, I believe, is a convincing illustration of the power of character theory. If time allows, I will go on discuss deeper structural properties of these groups.
