# Homomorph-containing subgroup

BEWARE! This term is nonstandard and is being used locally within the wiki. [SHOW MORE]
This article defines a subgroup property: a property that can be evaluated to true/false given a group and a subgroup thereof, invariant under subgroup equivalence. View a complete list of subgroup properties[SHOW MORE]

## Definition

A subgroup $H$ of a group $G$ is termed homomorph-containing if for any $\varphi \in \operatorname{Hom}(H,G)$, the image $\varphi(H)$ is contained in $H$.

## Metaproperties

### Trimness

This subgroup property is trim -- it is both trivially true (true for the trivial subgroup) and identity-true (true for a group as a subgroup of itself).
View other trim subgroup properties | View other trivially true subgroup properties | View other identity-true subgroup properties

For any group $G$, the trivial subgroup and the whole group are both homomorph-containing.

### Transitivity

NO: This subgroup property is not transitive: a subgroup with this property in a subgroup with this property, need not have the property in the whole group

We can have subgroups $H \le K \le G$ such that $H$ is a homomorph-containing subgroup of $K$ and $K$ is a homomorph-containing subgroup of $G$ but $H$ is not a homomorph-containing subgroup of $G$. For full proof, refer: Homomorph-containment is not transitive

### 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.

If $H \le K \le G$ and $H$ is a homomorph-containing subgroup of $G$, $H$ is also a homomorph-containing subgroup of $K$. For full proof, refer: Homomorph-containment satisfies intermediate subgroup condition

### Join-closedness

YES: This subgroup property is join-closed: an arbitrary (nonempty) join of subgroups with this property, also has this property.

If $H_i, i \in I$, are all homomorph-containing subgroups of $G$, then so is the join of subgroups $\langle H_i \rangle_{i \in I}$. For full proof, refer: Homomorph-containment is strongly join-closed

### Quotient-transitivity

This subgroup property is quotient-transitive: the corresponding quotient property is transitive.

If $H \le K \le G$ are groups such that $H$ is a homomorph-containing subgroup of $G$ and $K/H$ is a homomorph-containing subgroup of $G/H$, then $K$ is a homomorph-containing subgroup of $G$. For full proof, refer: Homomorph-containment is quotient-transitive
