Definition

A subgroup of a finite group is termed a Hall direct factor if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

  1. It is a Hall subgroup and is also a direct factor.
  2. It is a normal Hall subgroup and possesses a normal complement, i.e., is a retract.
  3. It is a Hall subgroup and is also a central factor of the whole group.

Transitivity

This subgroup property is transitive: a subgroup with this property in a subgroup with this property, also has this property in the whole group.

Trimness

This subgroup property is trim -- it is both trivially true (true for the trivial subgroup) and identity-true (true for a group as a subgroup of itself).

Intermediate subgroup condition

YES: This subgroup property satisfies the intermediate subgroup condition: if a subgroup has the property in the whole group, it has the property in every intermediate subgroup.
