Definition

QUICK PHRASES: contains all isomorphic subgroups, weakly closed in any ambient group

A subgroup H of a group G is termed an isomorph-containing subgroup if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

  1. Whenever K \le G is a subgroup of G isomorphic to H, K \le H.
  2. If G is a subgroup of L, H is weakly closed in G with respect to L.

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).

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.
