### Does $\mathrm{Aut}(\mathrm{Aut}(...\mathrm{Aut}(G)...))$ stabilize?

Purely for fun, I was playing around with iteratively applying $\DeclareMathOperator{\Aut}{Aut}\Aut$ to a group $G$; that is, studying groups of the form $${\Aut}^n(G):= \Aut(\Aut(...\Aut(G)...))$$ ...

### Isomorphic general linear groups implies isomorphic fields?

Suppose $n > 1$ is a natural number. Suppose $K$ and $L$ are fields such that the general linear groups of degree $n$ over them are isomorphic, i.e., $GL(n,K) \cong GL(n,L)$ as groups. Is it ...
### Can we ascertain that there exist an epimorphism $G\rightarrow H?$
Let $G,H$ be finite groups. Suppose we have a epimorphism $G\times G\rightarrow H\times H$. Can we find an epimorphism $G\rightarrow H$? A fellow graduate student asked me this question during TA ...
