A note on solitary subgroups of finite groups.

Comm. Algebra, 44(7):2945–2952, 2016


We say that a subgroup H of a finite group G is solitary (respectively, normal solitary) when it is a subgroup (respectively, normal subgroup) of G such that no other subgroup (respectively, normal subgroup) of G is isomorphic to H. A normal subgroup N of a group G is said to be quotient solitary when no other normal subgroup K of G gives a quotient isomorphic to G/N. We show some new results about lattice properties of these subgroups and their relation with classes of groups and present examples showing a negative answer to some questions about these subgroups.
