WARNING: POTENTIAL TERMINOLOGICAL CONFUSION: Please don't confuse this with subhomomorph-containing subgroup


A subgroup H of a group G is termed a sub-homomorph-containing subgroup if there is a chain of subgroups:

H = H_1 \le H_2 \le \dots \le H_n = G

such that each H_i is a homomorph-containing subgroup of H_{i+1}.

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

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).
