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., Hall-extensible automorphism) must also satisfy the second subgroup property (i.e., class-preserving automorphism)

## Definitions used

### Hall-extensible automorphism

Further information: Hall-extensible automorphism

An automorphism $\sigma$ of a finite group $G$ is termed Hall-extensible if, for any group $H$ containing $G$ as a Hall subgroup, there is an automorphism $\sigma'$ of $H$ whose restriction to $G$ equals $\sigma$.

### Class-preserving automorphism

Further information: Class-preserving automorphism

An automorphism $\sigma$ of a finite group $G$ is termed class-preserving if it sends every element to a conjugate element.

## Proof

Facts (1) and (2) combine to yield that any Hall-extensible automorphism is linearly pushforwardable over a prime field where the prime does not divide the order of the group, and fact (3) yields that if the field chosen is a class-separating field for the group, then the automorphism is class-preserving. Thus, we need to show that for every finite group, there exists a prime field with the prime not dividing the order of the group, such that the field is a class-separating field for the group. This is achieved by facts (4) and (5).
