This article defines a subgroup operator related to the subgroup property fully invariant subgroup. By subgroup operator is meant an operator that takes as input a subgroup of a group and outputs a subgroup of the same group.

This article is about a definition in group theory that is standard among the group theory community (or sub-community that dabbles in such things) but is not very basic or common for people outside.

Symbol-free definition

The fully invariant closure of a subgroup in a group can be defined in any of the following equivalent ways:

  • As the intersection of all fully invariant subgroups containing the given subgroup
  • As the subgroup generated by all endomorphs to the given subgroup
  • As the set of all elements that can be written as products of finite length of elements from the subgroup and their endomorphic images
