# Subgroup distortion

In geometric group theory, a discipline of mathematics, subgroup distortion measures the extent to which an overgroup can reduce the complexity of a group's word problem. Like much of geometric group theory, the concept is due to Misha Gromov, who introduced it in 1993. Formally, let S generate group H, and let G be an overgroup for H generated by S ∪ T. Then each generating set defines a word metric on the corresponding group; the distortion of H in G is the asymptotic equivalence class of the function where BX(x, r) is the ball of radius r about center x in X and diam(S) is the diameter of S. Subgroups with constant distortion are called quasiconvex. (Wikipedia).

Subgroups abstract algebra

In this tutorial we define a subgroup and prove two theorem that help us identify a subgroup. These proofs are simple to understand. There are also two examples of subgroups.

Normal subgroups

Before we carry on with our coset journey, we need to discover when the left- and right cosets are equal to each other. The obvious situation is when our group is Abelian. The other situation is when the subgroup is a normal subgroup. In this video I show you what a normal subgroup is a
