Embedding Group as a Normal Subgroup

    Hi, let G be any group . Is there a way of embedding G in some other
    group H so that G is normal in H, _other_ than by using the embedding:

    G -->G x G' , for some group G'?

    I assume this is easier if G is Abelian and is embedded in an
    Abelian group. Is there a way of doing this in general?

    Try semidirect products
