## Definition

### Symbol-free definition

A subgroup of a group is termed potentially fully invariant if there is an embedding of the bigger group in some group such that, in that embedding the subgroup becomes fully invariant.

### Definition with symbols

A subgroup $H$ of a group $G$ is termed potentially fully invariant in $G$ if there exists a group $K$ containing $G$ such that $H$ is fully invariant in $K$.

## Formalisms

### In terms of the potentially operator

This property is obtained by applying the potentially operator to the property: fully characteristic subgroup
View other properties obtained by applying the potentially operator

The property of being potentially fully invariant is obtained by applying the potentially operator to the property of being fully invariant. The potentially operator is an idempotent ascendant monotone operator.

### Stronger properties

Property Meaning Proof of implication Proof of strictness (reverse implication failure) Intermediate notions
fully invariant subgroup invariant under all endomorphisms (by definition) (cyclic normal subgroup examples)
verbal subgroup image of a word map (via fully invariant) (via fully invariant)
potentially verbal subgroup can be verbal inside a bigger group follows from verbal implies fully invariant (unclear)
normal-potentially fully invariant subgroup can be fully invariant in a bigger group in which the original ambient group is normal (by definition) (unclear)
central subgroup of finite group central implies potentially fully invariant in finite any non-abelian group as a subgroup of itself
cyclic normal subgroup of a finite group (via homocyclic normal)
homocyclic normal subgroup of a finite group homocyclic normal implies potentially fully invariant in finite
fully normalized potentially fully invariant subgroup also a fully normalized subgroup

### Weaker properties

normal subgroup potentially fully invariant implies normal normal not implies potentially fully invariant

NO: This subgroup property is not transitive: a subgroup with this property in a subgroup with this property, need not have the property in the whole group
