This article gives the statement and possibly, proof, of a non-implication relation between two subgroup properties. That is, it states that every subgroup satisfying the first subgroup property (i.e., normal subgroup) need not satisfy the second subgroup property (i.e., normal-potentially characteristic subgroup)

Verbal statement

It is possible to have a normal subgroup of a group that is not a normal-potentially characteristic subgroup.

Statement with symbols

We can have a group G with a subgroup H such that H is normal in G, but whenever K is a group containing G as a normal subgroup, H is not a characteristic subgroup in K.

  2. Normal-potentially characteristic implies normal-extensible automorphism-invariant


The proof follows directly from facts (1) and (2).
