ANALOGY: This is an analogue in Lie rings of a fact encountered in group. The old fact is: characteristicity is transitive.
Another analogue to the same fact, in the same new context, is: characteristicity is transitive for Lie rings

## Statement

A derivation-invariant Lie subring of a derivation-invariant Lie subring is a derivation-invariant Lie subring. In symbols, if $L$ is a Lie ring with subrings $A,B$ such that $B$is a derivation-invariant Lie subring of $L$ and $A$ is a derivation-invariant Lie subring of $B$, then $A$ is a derivation-invariant Lie subring of $L$.

## Proof

Given: A Lie ring $L$ with Lie subrings $A \le B \le L$. $B$ is a derivation-invariant Lie subring of $L$ and $A$ is a derivation-invariant subring of $B$.

To prove: $A$ is a derivation-invariant subring of $L$.

Proof: Suppose $d$ is a derivation of $L$.

Since $B$ is a derivation-invariant subring of $L$, $d$ restricts to a map from $B$ to itself. Let $d'$ be the restriction of $d$ to $B$. Clearly, $d'$ is a derivation of $B$.

Since $A$ is derivation-invariant in $B$, $d'$ restricts to a map from $A$ to itself. Thus, $d$ restricts to a map from $A$ to $A$.
