U+25C5 WHITE LEFTPOINTING POINTER
U+25C5 was added to Unicode in version 1.1 (1993). It belongs to the block
This character is a Other Symbol and is commonly used, that is, in no specific script. The character is also known as backward arrow indicator.
The glyph is not a composition. It has a Neutral East Asian Width. In bidirectional context it acts as Other Neutral and is not mirrored. In text U+25C5 behaves as Alphabetic regarding line breaks. It has type Other for sentence and Other for word breaks. The Grapheme Cluster Break is Any.
The CLDR project labels this character “hollow leftpointing pointer” for use in screen reading software. It assigns additional tags, e.g. for search in emoji pickers: hollow leftpointing pointer.
The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:
In abstract algebra, a normal subgroup (also known as an invariant subgroup or selfconjugate subgroup) is a subgroup that is invariant under conjugation by members of the group of which it is a part. In other words, a subgroup N {displaystyle N} of the group G {displaystyle G} is normal in G {displaystyle G} if and only if g n g − 1 ∈ N {displaystyle gng^{1}in N} for all g ∈ G {displaystyle gin G} and n ∈ N . {displaystyle nin N.} The usual notation for this relation is N ◃ G . {displaystyle N riangleleft G.}
Normal subgroups are important because they (and only they) can be used to construct quotient groups of the given group. Furthermore, the normal subgroups of G {displaystyle G} are precisely the kernels of group homomorphisms with domain G , {displaystyle G,} which means that they can be used to internally classify those homomorphisms.
Évariste Galois was the first to realize the importance of the existence of normal subgroups.
