For given $G$, the set $\text{group}(G)$ is the set of all pairs $\langle G,* \rangle$, containing $G$ itself, as well a binary operation which fulfills the group axioms. One generally calls $G$ the group, i.e. the set with respect to which the operation "$*$" is defined. | For given $G$, the set $\text{group}(G)$ is the set of all pairs $\langle G,* \rangle$, containing $G$ itself, as well a binary operation which fulfills the group axioms.
