Verbally closed subgroup

Definition

Suppose G is a group and H is a subgroup of G. We say that H is verbally closed in G if the following is true: For any word w in n letters, the image of H^n under the word map corresponding to w equals the intersection of H with the image of G^n under the word map corresponding to w.
