Abstract: We study the class $ \mathcal{L}$ of Lagrangian groups, that is, of finite groups $ G$ possessing a subgroup of index $ n$ for each factor $ n$ of $ \vert G\vert$. These groups and their analogues were considered by McLain in [4] and the object of the present work is to extend the results in this article. We study the classes $ (G) = \{ H\vert G \times H \in \mathcal{L}\} $ and also the closure of $ \mathcal{L}$ under wreath products. We also consider the two classes $ \mathfrak{X}$ and $ \mathfrak{Y}$ introduced in [2] and [4] respectively.
