Definition

Definition with symbols

An automorphism \sigma of a group G is termed chain-extensible if the following holds. Given the following data:

  • A totally ordered set I with unique minimum element 0
  • A group G_i for each i \in I such that G_0 = G
  • Inclusions G_i \to G_j for i < j, compatible with composition

There exist automorphisms \sigma_i of G_i for each i such that whenever i < j the restriction of \sigma_j to G_i is \sigma_i, and such that \sigma_0 = \sigma.
