A group property \alpha is termed finite direct product-closed if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

  1. Whenever G_1 and G_2 are groups satisfying \alpha, the external direct product G_1 \times G_2 also satisfies \alpha.
  2. For any positive integer \alpha and groups G_1,G_2,\dots,G_n all of which satisfy \alpha, the external direct product G_1 \times G_2 \times \dots \times G_n also satisfies \alpha.

Note that if the trivial group also satisfies \alpha, we say that \alpha is strongly finite direct product-closed.
