### Equivalent definitions in tabular format

Below are many equivalent definitions of isomorph-containing subgroup.

No. Shorthand A subgroup of a group is isomorph-containing in it if... A subgroup $H$ of a group $G$ is called an isomorph-containing subgroup of $G$ if ...
1 contains all isomorphic subgroups it contains any subgroup of the whole group isomorphic to it. for any subgroup $M$ of $G$ such that $H$ and $M$ are isomorphic groups, $M \le H$.
2 weakly closed in any ambient group it is weakly closed in any ambient group of the whole group. for any group $L$ containing $G$, $H$ is weakly closed in $G$ with respect to $L$.

## Metaproperties

BEWARE! This section of the article uses terminology local to the wiki, possibly without giving a full explanation of the terminology used (though efforts have been made to clarify terminology as much as possible within the particular context)

Here is a summary:

Metaproperty name Satisfied? Proof Difficulty level (0-5) Statement with symbols
transitive subgroup property No isomorph-containment is not transitive It is possible to have groups $H \le K \le G$ such that $H$ is an isomorph-containing subgroup of $K$ and $K$ is an isomorph-containing subgroup of $G$, but $H$ is not an isomorph-containing subgroup of $G$.
trim subgroup property Yes 0 In any group $G$, the trivial subgroup $\{ e \}$ and the whole group $G$ are both isomorph-containing subgroups of $G$.
intermediate subgroup condition Yes 1 If $H \le K \le G$ are groups such that $H$ is isomorph-containing in $G$, then $H$ is also isomorph-containing in $K$.
