# Subgroup of abelian group

From Groupprops

This article describes a property that arises as the conjunction of a subgroup property: subgroup with a group property imposed on theambient group: abelian group

## Contents

## Definition

A subgroup of a group is termed a **subgroup of abelian group** if the ambient group is an abelian group.

## Relation with other properties

### Stronger properties

Property | Meaning | Proof of implication | Proof of strictness (reverse implication failure) | Intermediate notions |
---|---|---|---|---|

subgroup of cyclic group | the whole group is cyclic | |FULL LIST, MORE INFO |

### Weaker properties

Properties weaker than this are properties true for all subgroups of abelian groups.

central factor | product with centralizer is whole group | (via central subgroup) | (via central subgroup) | Central subgroup|FULL LIST, MORE INFO |

transitively normal subgroup | every normal subgroup of it is normal in the whole group. | (via central factor) | (via central factor) | Central subgroup|FULL LIST, MORE INFO |
