This is an opposite of normality


Symbol-free definition

A subgroup of a group is termed strongly contranormal if its product with any nontrivial normal subgroup is the whole group.

Definition with symbols

A subgroup H of a group G is termed strongly contranormal in G if, for any nontrivial normal subgroup N \triangleleft G, HN = G.

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

Any strongly contranormal subgroup of a strongly contranormal subgroup is strongly contranormal. This follows directly from the definition.


The whole group is strongly contranormal as a subgroup of itself. In contrast, the trivial subgroup is strongly contranormal only if the group is trivial.
