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]
This subgroup property is a finitarily tautological subgroup property: when the ambient group is a finite group, the property is satisfied.

Definition with symbols

A subgroup H of a group G is termed submaximal if there exists an ascending chain:

H = H_0 \le H_1 \le H_2 \le \ldots \le H_n = G

where each H_i is a maximal subgroup of H_{i+1}.


In terms of the subordination operator

This property is obtained by applying the subordination operator to the property: maximal subgroup

This subgroup property is transitive: a subgroup with this property in a subgroup with this property, also has this property in the whole group.
