6 Totally and Mutually Permutable Products
 6.1 Functions for Mutually and Totally Permutable Products

6 Totally and Mutually Permutable Products

In recent years, many authors have considered totally and mutually permutable subgroups. Recall that two subgroups A and B of a group G are totally permutable if every subgroup of A permutes with every subgroup of B, and they are mutually permutable if every subgroup of A permutes with B and every subgroup of B permutes with A.

We have defined some "One" functions which give a pair of subgroups which do not permute and prove that two subgroups fail to have a certain property.

We have also defined some functions to work with totally and mutually f-permutable subgroups, where f is a subgroup embedding functor.

The functions of this chapter are defined in a preliminary state.

6.1 Functions for Mutually and Totally Permutable Products

6.1-1 AreMutuallyPermutableSubgroups
‣ AreMutuallyPermutableSubgroups( [G, ]A, B )( function )

This function returns true if the subgroups A and B of G are mutually permutable subgroups, that is, every subgroup of A permutes with B and every subgroup of B permutes with A, and false otherwise. The method used here checks only that A permutes with all cyclic subgroups of B and that B permutes with all cyclic subgroups of A.

The method with two arguments assume that A and B have a common supergroup.

6.1-2 OnePairShowingNotMutuallyPermutableSubgroups
‣ OnePairShowingNotMutuallyPermutableSubgroups( [G, ]A, B )( function )

This function returns a pair of the form [ A, V ] with V a subgroup of B or of the form [ W, B ] with W a subgroup of A in which both subgroups do not permute, or fail if this pair does not exist because the product is mutually permutable.

6.1-3 AreTotallyPermutableSubgroups
‣ AreTotallyPermutableSubgroups( [G, ]A, B )( function )

This function returns true if the subgroups A and B of G are totally permutable, that is, every subgroup of A permutes with every subgroup of B, and false otherwise. The method used here checks only that every cyclic subgroup of A permutes with every cyclic subgroup of B.

The method with two arguments assume that A and B have a common supergroup.

6.1-4 OnePairShowingNotTotallyPermutableSubgroups
‣ OnePairShowingNotTotallyPermutableSubgroups( [G, ]A, B )( function )

This function returns a pair of the form [ V, W ], with V a subgroup of A and W a subgroup of B, such that both subgroups do not permute, or fail if this pair does not exist because the product is totally permutable.

true

6.1-5 AreMutuallyFPermutableSubgroups
‣ AreMutuallyFPermutableSubgroups( [G, ]A, B, fA, fB )( function )

This function returns true if the subgroups A and B are mutually f-permutable, and false otherwise. Here A and B are subgroups of G and fA and fB are, respectively, lists of subgroups of A and B, respectively.

In the version with four arguments, A and B are assumed to be subgroups of a common supergroup.

6.1-6 OnePairShowingNotMutuallyFPermutableSubgroups
‣ OnePairShowingNotMutuallyFPermutableSubgroups( [G, ]A, B, fA, fB )( function )

This function returns a pair of the form [ A, V ] with V a subgroup in fB or B or of the form [ W, B ] with W a subgroup in fA or A in which both subgroups do not permute, or fail if this pair does not exist. Here A and B are subgroups of G and fA and fB are lists of subgroups of A and B, respectively.

In the version with four arguments, A and B are assumed to be subgroups of a common supergroup.

6.1-7 AreTotallyFPermutableSubgroups
‣ AreTotallyFPermutableSubgroups( [G, ]A, B, fA, fB )( function )

This function returns true if the subgroup A permutes with all subgroups in the list fB and B permutes with all subgroups in the list fA, and false otherwise. Here A and B are subgroups of G, fA is a list of subgroups of A and fB is a list of subgroups of B.

In the version with four arguments, A and B are assumed to be subgroups of a common supergroup.

6.1-8 OnePairShowingNotTotallyFPermutableSubgroups
‣ OnePairShowingNotTotallyFPermutableSubgroups( [G, ]A, B, fA, fB )( function )

This function returns a pair of the form [ U, V ] with U a subgroup in fA or A and V a subgroup in fB or B in which both subgroups do not permute, or fail if this pair does not exist. Here A and B are subgroups of G, fA is a list of subgroups of A and fB is a list of subgroups of B.

In the version with two arguments, A and B are assumed to be subgroups of a common supergroup.
