We use here a Klein four-group with identity element and three non-identity elements all of order two.

We can realize this Klein four-group as , in which case we can set . For more, see element structure of Klein four-group.

Table classifying subgroups up to automorphism


Note that because abelian implies every subgroup is normal, all the subgroups are normal subgroups.

Automorphism class of subgroups List of subgroups Isomorphism class Order of subgroups Index of subgroups Number of conjugacy classes(=1 iff automorph-conjugate subgroup) Size of each conjugacy class(=1 iff normal subgroup) Total number of subgroups(=1 iff characteristic subgroup) Isomorphism class of quotient (if exists) Subnormal depth Nilpotency class
trivial subgroup trivial group 1 4 1 1 1 Klein four-group 1 0
