Definition with symbols
Let be a group and be an element. Then, the approximate normalizer of , denoted as is defined as the set of all elements for which there exist nonzero integers such that .
The approximate normalizer of any element is a subgroup of the whole group. It equals the whole group if the element has finite order (viz, is a torsion element). Thus, the notion makes sense to study only for elements of infinite order.
