Socle is normality-preserving endomorphism-invariant

The socle of a group (defined as the join of all its minimal normal subgroups) is always a normality-preserving endomorphism-invariant subgroup, i.e., it contains its image under any normality-preserving endomorphism of the whole group. A normality-preserving endomorphism is an endomorphism that sends normal subgroups to normal subgroups.

This article gives the statement, and possibly proof, of the fact that for any group, the subgroup obtained by applying a given subgroup-defining function (i.e., socle) always satisfies a particular subgroup property (i.e., normality-preserving endomorphism-invariant subgroup)}
