This page describes a subgroup property obtained as a conjunction (AND) of two (or more) more fundamental subgroup properties: completely divisibility-closed subgroup and normal subgroup

Suppose G is a group and H is a subgroup of G. We say that H is a completely divisibility-closed normal subgroup of G if the following equivalent conditions are satisfied:

  1. H is both a normal subgroup of G and a completely divisibility-closed subgroup of G.
  2. H is a normal subgroup of G, and for any prime number p such that G is p-divisible, the quotient group G/H is p-torsion-free.
