Definition

Symbol-free definition

A subgroup of a group is said to be intermediately characteristic if it is characteristic not only in the whole group but also in every intermediate subgroup.

Definition with symbols

A subgroup H of a group G is said to be intermediately characteristic if forany intermediate subgroup K (such that H \le K \le G), H is characteristic in K.

Formalisms

In terms of the intermediately operator

This property is obtained by applying the intermediately operator to the property: characteristic subgroup
View other properties obtained by applying the intermediately operator

The subgroup property of being intermediately characteristic can be obtained by applying the intermediately operator to the subgroup property of being characteristic.

Transitivity

NO: This subgroup property is not transitive: a subgroup with this property in a subgroup with this property, need not have the property in the whole group

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).

Quotient-transitivity

This subgroup property is quotient-transitive: the corresponding quotient property is transitive.

Intermediate subgroup condition

YES: This subgroup property satisfies the intermediate subgroup condition: if a subgroup has the property in the whole group, it has the property in every intermediate subgroup.

Effect of property operators

Right transiter

It turns out that any intermediately characteristic subgroup of a transfer-closed characteristic subgroup is again intermediately characteristic. This follows from some simple reasoning and the fact that characteristicity is itself transitive. Further information: Intermediately characteristic of transfer-closed characteristic implies intermediately characteristic

Hence, the right transiter of the property of being intermediately characteristic is weaker than the property of being transfer-closed characteristic.
