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.

Thus [[OMEGA].sub.2](A)B is the product of two elementary abelian normal subgroups. Since p is odd, we see that [[OMEGA].sub.2](A)B has exponent p, which is a contradiction.
This first of two volumes covers basic concepts, characters, arithematical properties of characters, products of characters, induced characters and representations, projective representations, Clifford theory, Brauer's induction theorems, faithful characters, the existence of normal subgroups, and sums of degrees of irreducible characters.
Even the naive translation of normal subgroups to normal Hopf subalgebras is problematic.
The plasma renalase levels of the multi-branch and two-branch stenosis subgroups were significantly lower than that of the subgroup with normal coronary angiography outcomes (P less than 0.05) while the levels of the single-branch stenosis and normal subgroups were similar (P greater than 0.05).
P(G) = {P([G.sub.1]) [union] P([G.sub.2]), [*.sub.1], [*.sub.2]} is said to be a neutrosophic normal subbigroup of [B.sub.N](G) if P(G) is a neutrosophic subbigroup and both P([G.sub.1]) and P([G.sub.2]) are normal subgroups of B([G.sub.1]) and B([G.sub.2]) respectively.
Given a prime p, a group is called residually p if the intersection of its p-power index normal subgroups is trivial, and called virtually residually p if it has a finite index subgroup that is residually p.
