Hi there folks.
In the course of my research, I’ve been coming up with subgroups A of groups G with the property that the normaliser of A is the whole of G and the normal core of A is trivial. (The normal core of a subgroup is the largest subgroup of A which is normal in G, alternatively the intersection of all it’s conjugates).
I call these ”anti-normal” since they have the smallest possible core and the largest possible normaliser, as distinct from a normal subgroup which has the largest possible core and the smallest possible normaliser.
So my question is, have subgroups like these been looked at anywhere else? Is there a standard name I should be using? Is there much known about them? And if so, then is there any particularly good source where I could read about this?
Any help much appreciated. Cheers in advance.
