Symbol-free definition

A subgroup of a group is termed a c-closed normal subgroup if it is both a c-closed subgroup (it equals the centralizer of its centralizer) and a normal subgroup (it is invariant under inner automorphisms).

YES: This subgroup property is intersection-closed: an arbitrary (nonempty) intersection of subgroups with this property, also has this property.

An arbitrary intersection of c-closed normal subgroups is c-closed normal. This follows from the corresponding facts being true for c-closed subgroups and normal subgroups individually. For full proof, refer: c-closedness in strongly intersection-closed, normality is strongly intersection-closed


This subgroup property is centralizer-closed: the centralizer of any subgroup with this property, in the whole group, again has this property

The centralizer of a c-closed normal subgroup is again c-closed normal. This again follows from the corresponding statements for both properties. For full proof, refer: c-closedness is centralizer-closed, normality is centralizer-closed
