## Definition

### Symbol-free definition

A group is termed a **PT-group** if every subpermutable subgroup of the group is a permutable subgroup. In other words, a group is termed a PT-group if every permutable subgroup of a permutable subgroup is permutable.

For finite groups, this is the same as requiring that every subnormal subgroup be permutable.

### Definition with symbols

A group is termed a **PT-group** if, whenever is a permutable subgroup of and is a permutable subgroup of , then is a permutable subgroup of .

## Formalisms

### In terms of the subgroup property collapse operator

This group property can be defined in terms of the collapse of two subgroup properties. In other words, a group satisfies this group property if and only if every subgroup of it satisfying the first property (permutable subgroup) satisfies the second property (right-transitively permutable subgroup), and vice versa.

It can be expressed using the following collapses:

- subpermutable subgroup = permutable subgroup
- permutable subgroup = right-transitively permutable subgroup

## Relation with other properties

### Stronger properties

- T-group (in the case of finite groups): In the finite case, since every subpermutable subgroup is subnormal, every T-group is a PT-group
