Definition with symbols
In terms of the group property core operator
The Brauer core is a subgroup-defining function obtained by applying the group property core operator to the group property of being an odd-order group. The justification for applying this operator is the fact that the property of having odd order is a normal join-closed group property.
Subgroup-defining function properties
This subgroup-defining function is idempotent. In other words, applying this twice to a given group has the same effect as applying it once
The Brauer core of the Brauer core is the Brauer core. In fact, a group equals its own Brauer core if and only if it has odd order.
This subgroup-defining function is quotient-idempotent: taking the quotient of any group by the subgroup, gives a group where the subgroup-defining function yields the trivial subgroup

The quotient of a group by its Brauer core has trivial Brauer core. In other words, the quotient map by the Brauer core is an idempotent quotient-defining function.
