This article is about the groupprops wiki itself

Groupprops is intended as a dynamic repository of definitions, facts and proofs in the theory of groups, subgroups, automorphisms, and representations. Groupprops aims to be:

  • A quick reference tool for gathering the basic definition and important properties of any term/concept
  • A quick tool to check whether a particular fact (in group theory) is true, and to find facts related to a particular term
  • A quick tool to understand the proof of a result and figure out whether that proof os applicable in other contexts
