## 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 | No | isomorph-containment is not transitive | It is possible to have groups such that is an isomorph-containing subgroup of and is an isomorph-containing subgroup of , but is not an isomorph-containing subgroup of . | |

trim subgroup property | Yes | 0 | In any group , the trivial subgroup and the whole group are both isomorph-containing subgroups of . | |

intermediate subgroup condition | Yes | 1 | If are groups such that is isomorph-containing in , then is also isomorph-containing in . |
