We present a useful new characterization of the automorphisms of the regular wreath product group of a finite cyclic -group by a finite cyclic -group, for any prime , and we discuss an application. We also present a short new proof, based on representation
theory, for determining the order of the automorphism group Aut(), where is the regular wreath product of a finite cyclic -group by an arbitrary finite -group.
