2-subnormal implies join-transitively subnormal

This article gives the statement and possibly, proof, of an implication relation between two subgroup properties. That is, it states that every subgroup satisfying the first subgroup property (i.e., 2-subnormal subgroup) must also satisfy the second subgroup property (i.e., join-transitively subnormal subgroup)

Statement

Statement with symbols

Suppose H, K \le G are subgroups such that H is a 2-subnormal subgroup of G and K is a subnormal subgroup of G. Then, the join \langle H, K \rangle is a subnormal subgroup of G, and its subnormal depth in G is at most twice the subnormal depth of K.

Facts used

  1. 2-subnormality is conjugate-join-closed: A join of any collection of 2-subnormal subgroups that are conjugate to each other is again 2-subnormal.
  2. Join of subnormal subgroups is subnormal iff their commutator is subnormal: Suppose H, K are subnormal subgroups of a group G. Then, consider the subgroups [H,K] (the commutator) of H and K), the subgroup H^K (the join of H^k for all k \in K) and the subgroup \langle H, K \rangle. If any one of these is subnormal, so are the other two. Further, if s_1, s_2, s_3 denote respectively the subnormal depths of [H,K], H^K, \langle H, K \rangle, we have s_3 \le s_2k.
