The following are equivalent for a subgroup property p:

  • p satisfies the intermediate subgroup condition: whenever a subgroup H of a group G satisfies property p in G, H also satisfies property p in any intermediate subgroup K.
  • p is closed under finite upper intersections: If H \le G and K_1, K_2 are intermediate subgroups of G containing H, such that H satisfies property p in both K_1 and K_2, then H satisfies property p in K_1 \cap K_2.
  • p is closed under arbitrary upper intersections.
