# Injective endomorphism-invariant 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]

If the ambient group is a finite group, this property is equivalent to the property:characteristic subgroup

## Formalisms

### Function restriction expression

This subgroup property is a function restriction-expressible subgroup property: it can be expressed by means of the function restriction formalism, viz there is a function restriction expression for it.

## Metaproperties

BEWARE!This section of the article uses terminology local to the wiki, possibly without giving a full explanation of the terminology used (though efforts have been made to clarify terminology as much as possible within the particular context)

Here is a summary:

Metaproperty name | Satisfied? | Proof | Difficulty level (0-5) | Statement with symbols |
---|---|---|---|---|

transitive subgroup property | Yes | follows from balanced implies transitive | If are groups such that is injective endomorphism-invariant in and is injective endomorphism-invariant in , then is injective endomorphism-invariant in . | |

trim subgroup property | Yes | Obvious reasons | 0 | In any group , the trivial subgroup and the whole group are injective endomorphism-invariant in |

strongly intersection-closed subgroup property | Yes | follows from invariance implies strongly intersection-closed | If , are all injective endomorphism-invariant in , so is the intersection of subgroups . | |

strongly join-closed subgroup property | Yes | follows from endo-invariance implies strongly join-closed | If , are all injective endomorphism-invariant in , so is the join of subgroups |
