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). 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 A Simple Test Proposition 3 A subset H of a group G is a subgroup if and only if 1. H negationslash = ∅ 2. for all x , y ∈ H , xy 1 ∈ H. Furthermore, if H is finite, then it suffices to check that H is nonempty and closed under multiplication. Proof: Chapter 2: Subgroups Keith E.
