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]


A subgroup of a group is termed an abelian subgroup if it is abelian as a group.

This subgroup property is left-hereditary: any subgroup of a subgroup with this property also has this property. Hence, it is also a transitive subgroup property.


This subgroup property is not join-closed, viz., it is not true that a join of subgroups with this property must have this property.
