normal subgroup

[′nȯr·məl ′səb‚grüp]
A subgroup N of a group G where every expression g -1 ng is in N for every g in G and every n in N. Also known as invariant subgroup; normal divisor.

Normal Subgroup


(also normal divisor of a group, invariant subgroup), a fundamental concept of group theory, which was introduced by E. Galois. A normal subgroup of a group G is a subgroup H for which gH = Hg for arbitrary element g of group G.
