## Definition

### Equivalent definitions in tabular format

No. Shorthand A subgroup of a group is termed transitively normal if ... A subgroup $H$ of a group $G$ is termed transitively normal if ...
1 transitively normal every normal subgroup of the subgroup is normal in the whole group. whenever $K$ is a normal subgroup of $H$, $K$ is also a normal subgroup of $G$.
2 normal automorphisms restriction every normal automorphism of the whole group restricts to a normal automorphism of the subgroup. for any normal automorphism $\sigma$ of $G$, the restriction of $\sigma$ to $H$ is a normal automorphism of $H$.
3 normal CEP-subgroup it is a normal subgroup as well as a CEP-subgroup: every normal subgroup of it is an intersection with it of a normal subgroup of the whole group $H$ is a normal subgroup of $G$ and for any normal subgroup $K$ of $H$ there exists a normal subgroup $L$ of $G$ such that $K = H \cap L$.

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 page describes a subgroup property obtained as a conjunction (AND) of two (or more) more fundamental subgroup properties: normal subgroup and CEP-subgroup

CAUTIONARY NOTE: There is a paper where the term transitively normal is used for what we call intermediately subnormal-to-normal subgroup

## Examples

### Extreme examples

• Every group is transitively normal as a subgroup of itself.
• The trivial subgroup is transitively normal in any group.

## Metaproperties

BEWARE! This section of the article uses terminology local to the wiki, possibly without giving a full explanation of the terminology used (though efforts have been made to clarify terminology as much as possible within the particular context)
Metaproperty name Satisfied? Proof Statement with symbols
transitive subgroup property Yes transitive normality is transitive If $H \le K \le G$ are groups such that $H$ is transitively normal in $K$ and $K$ is transitively normal in $G$, then $H$ is transitively normal in $G$.
intermediate subgroup condition Yes transitive normality satisfies intermediate subgroup condition If $H \le K \le G$ and $H$ is transitively normal in $G$, then $H$ is transitively normal in $K$.
finite-intersection-closed subgroup property No transitive normality is not finite-intersection-closed It is possible to have a group $G$ and transitively normal subgroups $H_1,H_2$ of $G$ such that $H_1 \cap H_2$ is not transitively normal in $G$.
finite-join-closed subgroup property No transitive normality is not finite-join-closed It is possible to have a group $G$ and transitively normal subgroups $H_1,H_2$ of $G$ such that the join $\langle H_1,H_2\rangle$ (which is the same as the product $H_1H_2$) is not transitively normal.
centralizer-closed subgroup property No transitive normality is not centralizer-closed It is possible to have a group $G$ and a transitively normal subgroup $H$ of $G$ such that the centralizer $C_G(H)$ is not transitively normal.
image condition Yes transitive normality satisfies image condition If $H$ is a transitively normal subgroup of $G$ and $\varphi:G \to K$ is a surjective homomorphism, then $\varphi(H)$ is a transitively normal subgroup of $K$.
quotient-transitive subgroup property No transitive normality is not quotient-transitive It is possible to have groups $H \le K \le G$ such that $H$ is transitively normal in $G$ and $K/H$ is transitively normal in $G/H$, but $K$ is not transitively normal in $G$.
