Symbol-free definition

A subgroup property p is termed join-closed if the join of a nonempty (but otherwise arbitrary, possibly infinite) collection of subgroups, each with property p, also has property p.

Definition with symbols

A subgroup property p is termed join-closed if given a group G, a nonempty indexing set I, and a collection of subgroups H_i for i \in I, such that each H_i satisfies p, the join, i.e. the subgroup generated by the H_is, also satisfies p.
