# Injective endomorphism-invariant subgroup

BEWARE!This term is nonstandard and is being used locally within the wiki. [SHOW MORE]

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]

If the ambient group is a finite group, this property is equivalent to the property:characteristic subgroup

## Definition

QUICK PHRASES: invariant under all injective endomorphisms, injective endomorphism-invariant

### Symbol-free definition

A subgroup of a group is termed **injective endomorphism-invariant** if every injective endomorphism of the whole group takes the subgroup to within itself.

### Definition with symbols

A subgroup of a group is termed **injective endomorphism-invariant** if for any injective endomorphism of , the image of under is contained inside .

## Formalisms

### Function restriction expression

This subgroup property is a function restriction-expressible subgroup property: it can be expressed by means of the function restriction formalism, viz there is a function restriction expression for it.

### Stronger properties

- Fully characteristic subgroup
- Isomorph-free subgroup
- Isomorph-containing subgroup
- Intermediately injective endomorphism-invariant subgroup

### Weaker properties

- Characteristic subgroup:
*For proof of the implication, refer injective endomorphism-invariant implies characteristic and for proof of its strictness (i.e. the reverse implication being false) refer Characteristic not implies injective endomorphism-invariant*. - Normal subgroup

### Related properties

- Strictly characteristic subgroup: This is the invariance property with respect to surjective, rather than injective, endomorphisms.

## Metaproperties

### Transitivity

This subgroup property is transitive: a subgroup with this property in a subgroup with this property, also has this property in the whole group.ABOUT THIS PROPERTY: View variations of this property that are transitive | View variations of this property that are not transitiveABOUT TRANSITIVITY: View a complete list of transitive subgroup properties|View a complete list of facts related to transitivity of subgroup properties |Read a survey article on proving transitivity

The property of being injective endomorphism-invariant is transitive on account of its being a balanced subgroup property (function restriction formalism).

`For full proof, refer: Injective endomorphism-invariance is transitive`

`Further information: Balanced implies transitive, full invariance is transitive, characteristicity is transitive`

### Trimness

This subgroup property is trim -- it is both trivially true (true for the trivial subgroup) and identity-true (true for a group as a subgroup of itself).

View other trim subgroup properties | View other trivially true subgroup properties | View other identity-true subgroup properties

The trivial subgroup is injective endomorphism-invariant because every endomorphism (injective or not) must take it to itself.

The whole group is also clearly injective endomorphism-invariant.

### Intersection-closedness

YES:This subgroup property is intersection-closed: an arbitrary (nonempty) intersection of subgroups with this property, also has this property.ABOUT THIS PROPERTY: View variations of this property that are intersection-closed | View variations of this property that are not intersection-closedABOUT INTERSECTION-CLOSEDNESS: View all intersection-closed subgroup properties (or, strongly intersection-closed properties) | View all subgroup properties that are not intersection-closed | Read a survey article on proving intersection-closedness | Read a survey article on disproving intersection-closedness

An arbitrary intersection of injective endomorphism-invariant subgroups is injective endomorphism-invariant. This follows on account of injective endomorphism-invariance being an invariance property.

`For full proof, refer: Injective endomorphism-invariance is strongly intersection-closed`

`Further information: Invariance implies strongly intersection-closed, normality is strongly intersection-closed, characteristicity is strongly join-closed, full invariance is strongly join-closed`

### Join-closedness

YES:This subgroup property is join-closed: an arbitrary (nonempty) join of subgroups with this property, also has this property.ABOUT THIS PROPERTY: View variations of this property that are join-closed | View variations of this property that are not join-closedABOUT JOIN-CLOSEDNESS: View all join-closed subgroup properties (or, strongly join-closed properties) | View all subgroup properties that are not join-closed | Read a survey article on proving join-closedness | Read a survey article on disproving join-closedness

An arbitrary join of injective endomorphism-invariant subgroups is injective endomorphism-invariant. This follows on account of injective endomorphism-invariance being an endo-invariance property.
