Definition

Suppose G is a group. The join of all abelian normal subgroups of G is the subgroup of G defined as the join of all the abelian normal subgroups of G.

If G is a finite group (or more generally a group satisfying ascending chain condition on normal subgroups) then this is equivalent to the join of all subgroups that are maximal among abelian normal subgroups.
