This article defines a property that can be evaluated for a conjugacy functor on a finite group. |View all such properties


Suppose G is a finite group, p a prime number, and W a conjugacy functor on G with respect to p. We say that W is weakly closed in G with respect to p if W(P) is a weakly closed subgroup of P.

For instance, a p-normal group is a group in which the conjugacy functor that arises by taking the center is weakly closed.
