Chapter 2: Subgroups Keith E. Emmert Definition and Examples Centralizers and Normalizers, Stabilizers and Kernels Cyclic Groups and Cyclic Subgroups Subgroups Generated by Subsets of a Group The Lattice of subgroups of a Group Definition of a Subgroup Definition 1 Let G be a group. The subset H of G is a subgroup of G if H is nonempty and H is closed under products and inverses. In this case we write H G . Example 2 1. Clearly, the operation “is a subgroup” is a transitive operation. 2. Z Q R with the operation addition. 3. Let G be a group. We have the trivial subgroup { 1 } ≤ G and we also note that G G . 4. The set of even integers is a subgroup of the set of integers (under addition).

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
