# Baer norm is Dedekind

From Groupprops

This article gives the statement, and possibly proof, of the fact that for any group, the subgroup obtained by applying a given subgroup-defining function(i.e., Baer norm) always satisfies a particular group property (i.e., Dedekind group (?))

## Statement

### Verbal statement

The Baer norm of a group, defined as the intersection of the normalizers of all its subgroups, is a Dedekind group: every subgroup of it is normal in it.

Note that this is the strongest condition we can put on the Baer norm, because every Dedekind group occurs as its own Baer norm.

### Statement with symbols

If is a group and is the Baer norm of , then for any subgroup , is normal in .

## Related facts

- Baer norm is hereditarily permutable: Every subgroup of the Baer norm is permutable in the whole group.
- Baer norm not is hereditarily normal: Every subgroup of the Baer norm need not be normal in the
*whole*group (though this result says that it is normal in the Baer norm). - Baer norm is hereditarily 2-subnormal

## Proof

**Given**: A group with Baer norm . A subgroup .

**To prove**: is normal in .

**Proof**: Since is the intersection of normalizers of *all* subgroups of , . Thus, is normal in .
