A group with no infinite minimal generating set is a group in which any minimal generating set is a finite subset.

Note that such a group may or may not be a finitely generated group. If the group is a finitely generated group, then it does have minimal generating sets, all of which are finite. If the group is not finitely generated, it has no minimal generating set.

This article defines a group property: a property that can be evaluated to true/false for any given group, invariant under isomorphism
