Restrictions of characters in p-solvable groups

Rossi, D. ORCID: 0000-0003-2832-2477 & Sambale, B. (2021). Restrictions of characters in p-solvable groups. Journal of Algebra, 587, pp. 130-141. doi: 10.1016/j.jalgebra.2021.07.034


Let G be a p-solvable group, P ≤ G a p-subgroup and χ ∈ Irr(G) such that χ(1)p ≥ |G : P |p. We prove that the restriction χP is a sum of characters induced from subgroups Q ≤ P such that χ(1)p = |G : Q|p. This generalizes previous results by Giannelli–Navarro and Giannelli–Sambale on the number of linear constituents of χP . Although this statement does not hold for arbitrary groups, we conjecture a weaker version which can be seen as an extension of Brauer–Nesbitt’s theorem on characters of p-defect zero. It also extends a conjecture of Wilde.
