Symbol-free definition

A finite group is termed an A-group if every Sylow subgroup of it is Abelian.

Definition with symbols

A finite group G if for any prime p dividing the order of G and any p-Sylow subgroup P of G, P is Abelian.

Direct products

This group property is direct product-closed, viz., the direct product of an arbitrary (possibly infinite) family of groups each having the property, also has the property

A direct product of A-groups is an A-group. This is because the Sylow subgroups of the direct product are the direct products of the individual Sylow subgroups.


This group property is subgroup-closed, viz., any subgroup of a group satisfying the property also satisfies the property

Any subgroup of an A-group is an A-group. This follows from the fact that a p-Sylow subgroup of a subgroup is a p-group in the whole group, and hence is contained in a p-Sylow subgroup of the whole group, which is Abelian. Hence, the p-Sylow subgroup of the subgroup is also Abelian.


This group property is quotient-closed, viz., any quotient of a group satisfying the property also has the property

Any quotient of an A-group is an A-group. This follows from the fact that under a quotient mapping, the image of a Sylow subgroup remains a Sylow subgroup.
