This article is about a general term. A list of important particular cases (instances) is available at Category: Subgroup properties satisfying inverse image condition


Symbol-free definition

A subgroup property is said to satisfy the inverse image condition if, for any homomorphism of groups, the inverse image of a subgroup satisfying the property in the group on the right, satisfies the property in the group on the left.

Definition with symbols

Let p be a subgroup property. We say that p satisfies the inverse image condition if for any homomorphism \phi: G \to H, the following holds: whenever N is a subgroup satisfying p in H, \phi^{-1}(N) satisfies p in G.
