# Characteristic-extensible automorphism

From Groupprops

This article defines an automorphism property, viz a property of group automorphisms. Hence, it also defines a function property (property of functions from a group to itself)

## Definition

### Symbol-free definition

An automorphism of a group is said to be **characteristic-extensible** if, for every embedding of the group as a characteristic subgroup of a bigger group, the automorphism can be extended to the bigger group.

### Definition with symbols

An automorphism of a group is said to be **characteristic-extensible** if for any embedding of as a characteristic subgroup of a group , there exists an automorphism of such that the restriction of to is .

## Formalisms

### In terms of the qualified extensibility operator

This property is obtained by applying the qualified extensibility operator to the property: characteristicity

The property of being a characteristic-extensible automorphism is obtained by applying the qualified extensibility operator, where the automorphism property is the tautology, and the subgroup property is that of being characteristic.
