Related to Subgroup: Normal subgroup


A subset N of a group G which is itself a group relative to the same operation.



in mathematics, a subset of elements of a group that itself forms a group with respect to the group operation. This means that a subgroup that contains the elements a and b will always contain a-1 and ab as well.

The formation of a subgroup does not necessarily mean the NAIC will develop a model in a particular area, but it may increase the odds that the NAIC will at least talk about creating a model law, a model regulation, or some other type of model, such as a model bulletin, or a model instruction manual section for insurance company examiners.

Lower courts presented with due process challenges on behalf of subgroups typically respond in one of two ways: either they reject the claims based on the Mathews Court's statement that due process rules must be targeted to "the generality of cases, not the rare exceptions," or they apply the Mathews test to only the subgroup, as if the subgroup members make up the entire population of individuals using the procedures.
