Let $G, H_1$ and $H_2$ be groups.

Let $f_1: G \to H_1$ and $f_2: G \to H_2$ be group homomorphisms.

Then $f_1 \times f_2: G \to H_1 \times H_2$, defined as:

$\forall g \in G: \map{\paren {f_1 \times f_2} } g = \tuple {\map {f_1} g, \map {f_2} g}$

is called the direct product of $f_1$ and $f_2$.
