# Center is marginal of finite type

From Groupprops

(Redirected from Center is marginal)

This article gives the statement, and possibly proof, of the fact that for any group, the subgroup obtained by applying a given subgroup-defining function (i.e., center) always satisfies a particular subgroup property (i.e., marginal subgroup of finite type)}

## Statement

The center of a group is a marginal subgroup of finite type, and hence a marginal subgroup. More specifically, it is the marginal subgroup corresponding to the commutator word .
