Symbol-free definition

A group in which every pronormal subgroup is normal is a group with the property that any pronormal subgroup of the group is a normal subgroup.


In terms of the subgroup property collapse operator

This group property can be defined in terms of the collapse of two subgroup properties. In other words, a group satisfies this group property if and only if every subgroup of it satisfying the first property (pronormal subgroup) satisfies the second property (normal subgroup), and vice versa.

Stronger properties


For a finite group, every pronormal subgroup being normal is equivalent to the group being a finite nilpotent group.
