## Definition

### Symbol-free definition

A subgroup of a finite group is termed a Sylow direct factor if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

1. It is a Sylow subgroup and is also a direct factor of the group.
2. It is a normal Sylow subgroup and possesses a normal p-complement, i.e., it is a retract of the group.
3. It is a Sylow subgroup and is also a central factor of the whole group.
4. It is a Sylow subgroup and is also a conjugacy-closed normal subgroup of the whole group.

## Metaproperties

### Join-closedness

YES: This subgroup property is join-closed: an arbitrary (nonempty) join of subgroups with this property, also has this property.

### Intermediate subgroup condition

YES: This subgroup property satisfies the intermediate subgroup condition: if a subgroup has the property in the whole group, it has the property in every intermediate subgroup.
