Statement

Property-theoretic statement

The subgroup property of being normal satisfies the subgroup metaproperty of being centralizer-closed.

Verbal statement

The centralizer of a normal subgroup is normal.

Statement with symbols

Suppose G is a group and H is a normal subgroup of G. Then, the centralizer C_G(H) of H in G is also a normal subgroup of G.

Generalizations

Auto-invariance implies centralizer-closed: Any subgroup property that can be described as the invariance property with respect to a certain automorphism property, is closed under taking centralizers. Some other instances of this generalization are:
