Abelian verbal subgroup

This article describes a property that arises as the conjunction of a subgroup property: verbal subgroup with a group property (itself viewed as a subgroup property): abelian group

Definition

A subgroup $H$ of a group $G$ is termed an abelian verbal subgroup if $H$ is an abelian group in its own right (i.e., it is an abelian subgroup of $G$) and $H$ is a verbal subgroup of $G$.
