## Definition

### Symbol-free definition

A subgroup of a group is termed **characteristic-potentially characteristic** if there is an embedding of the bigger group in some group such that, in that embedding both the group and the subgroup become characteristic.

### Definition with symbols

A subgroup of a group is termed **characteristic-potentially characteristic** in if there exists a group containing such that both and are characteristic in .

## Formalisms

BEWARE!This section of the article uses terminology local to the wiki, possibly without giving a full explanation of the terminology used (though efforts have been made to clarify terminology as much as possible within the particular context)

### In terms of the upper-hook operator

Given two subgroup properties and , the upper-hook operator of and is defined as the following property : a subgroup of a group has property if there exists a group containing such that has property in and has property in .

The property of being strongly potentially characteristic is thus obtained by applying the upper-hook operator to the property characteristic subgroup with itself.

**Potentially relatively characteristic subgroup**: This is a weaker notion, that turns out to be the same as normality.`For full proof, refer: Potentially relatively characteristic equals normal` - Characteristic-extensible automorphism-invariant subgroup
- Normal-extensible automorphism-invariant subgroup
