This article defines a subgroup property: a property that can be evaluated to true/false given a group and a subgroup thereof, invariant under subgroup equivalence. View a complete list of subgroup properties[SHOW MORE]

Definition

A subgroup H of a group G is termed a power subgroup if there exists an integer n such that:

H = \{ g^n \mid g \in G \}

For a group of prime power order, the k^{th} agemo subgroup are power subgroups if a product of (p^k)^{th} powers is also a (p^k)^{th} power.

Metaproperties

Trimness

This subgroup property is trim -- it is both trivially true (true for the trivial subgroup) and identity-true (true for a group as a subgroup of itself).

Transitivity

This subgroup property is transitive: a subgroup with this property in a subgroup with this property, also has this property in the whole group.
