Finite-extensible implies class-preserving
This article gives the statement and possibly, proof, of an implication relation between two automorphism properties. That is, it states that every automorphism satisfying the first automorphism property (i.e., finite-extensible automorphism) must also satisfy the second automorphism property (i.e., class-preserving automorphism)

- Finite solvable-extensible implies class-preserving: Essentially, the same proof works, because if the original group is solvable, all the bigger groups constructed are also solvable.

Facts (1) and (2) combine to yield that any finite-extensible automorphism is linearly pushforwardable over a (finite) prime field where the prime does not divide the order of the group, and fact (3) yields that if the field chosen is a class-separating field for the group, then the automorphism is class-preserving. Thus, we need to show that for every finite group, there exists a prime field with the prime not dividing the order of the group, such that the field is a class-separating field for the group. This is achieved by facts (4) and (5).
