Submaximal subgroup

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]
This subgroup property is a finitarily tautological subgroup property: when the ambient group is a finite group, the property is satisfied.

Definition

Definition with symbols

A subgroup $H$ of a group $G$ is termed submaximal if there exists an ascending chain: $H = H_0 \le H_1 \le H_2 \le \ldots \le H_n = G$

where each $H_i$ is a maximal subgroup of $H_{i+1}$.

Formalisms

In terms of the subordination operator

This property is obtained by applying the subordination operator to the property: maximal subgroup
