## Definition

### Symbol-free definition

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

- It is a Sylow subgroup and is also a direct factor of the group.
- It is a normal Sylow subgroup and possesses a normal p-complement, i.e., it is a retract of the group.
- It is a Sylow subgroup and is also a central factor of the whole group.
- It is a Sylow subgroup and is also a conjugacy-closed normal subgroup of the whole group.

## Metaproperties

### Join-closedness

YES:This subgroup property is join-closed: an arbitrary (nonempty) join of subgroups with this property, also has this property.ABOUT THIS PROPERTY: |ABOUT JOIN-CLOSEDNESS: View all join-closed subgroup properties (or, strongly join-closed properties) | View all subgroup properties that are not join-closed | Read a survey article on proving join-closedness | Read a survey article on disproving join-closedness

### 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.ABOUT THIS PROPERTY: |ABOUT INTERMEDIATE SUBROUP CONDITION:View all properties satisfying intermediate subgroup condition | View facts about intermediate subgroup condition
