## Definition

The **base diagonal of a wreath product** is the subgroup comprising those members of the base power where all coordinates are equal. In the language of functions, it is the subgroup comprising the constant functions.

A subgroup is termed a **base diagonal of a wreath product** if it occurs as the base diagonal for some way of expressing the group as an internal wreath product.

## Facts

- If is the base diagonal of a wreath product in a group , and is a nilpotent group of nilpotence class , then is also a subnormal subgroup of subnormal depth . In particular, if is abelian, then is normal. In fact, the following stronger statement is true: if has nilpotence class , then , with written times, is the trivial subgroup.
