## Definition

QUICK PHRASES: contains all isomorphic subgroups, weakly closed in any ambient group

A subgroup $H$ of a group $G$ is termed an isomorph-containing subgroup if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

1. Whenever $K \le G$ is a subgroup of $G$ isomorphic to $H$, $K \le H$.
2. If $G$ is a subgroup of $L$, $H$ is weakly closed in $G$ with respect to $L$.

### 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

### 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).

### 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.
