Definition

Symbol-free definition

A subgroup property p is termed an endo-invariance property if for any group, there is a collection of endomorphisms of the group such that a subgroup has property p in the group if and only if it is invariant under all the endomorphisms in that collection.

In terms of the function restriction formalism

A subgroup property p is termed an endo-invariance property if it has a function restriction expression of the form:

a \to Function

where a is a property of endomorphisms (in other words, a is a function property satisfied only by endomorphisms).

Equivalently, it can be expressed in the form:

a \to Endomorphism

Equivalence of definitions

The equivalence of the various definitions follows from this observation: restriction of endomorphism to invariant subgroup is endomorphism.
