This article defines a subgroup property: a property that can be evaluated to true/false given a group and a subgroup thereof, invariant under subgroup equivalence. View a complete list of subgroup properties[SHOW MORE]

Definition

A subgroup H of a group G is termed a fixed-point subgroup of a subgroup of the automorphism group if there is a subgroup B of the automorphism group \operatorname{Aut}(G) such that H is precisely the subset of G fixed under the action of B.

Formalisms

This property is the property of being closed with respect to a Galois correspondence between the group and its automorphism group, via the fixed point relation.

Particular cases

powering-invariant subgroup the subgroup is powered for all primes for which the group is powered

Intersection-closedness

YES: This subgroup property is intersection-closed: an arbitrary (nonempty) intersection of subgroups with this property, also has this property.
