It suffices to prove the result for every character, and hence for every irreducible character, of the abelian group < P, G >. Let e be an irreducible character of < P, G >. Then 6(1) 1 and 6(PG) = 6 (P)6(G). Furthermore 6 (P) is a pm-th root of unity for some m and so 6 (P) 1(mod ~). The result follows. (Solomon ) Let sr l , ... , sr'k be the conjugate classes of ®. Let G . ) is a nonJ - - J= J negative rational integer for any irreducible character X of ®. 5) Proof. Let ! (G) = G-l HG for G, H e::: ®.

The first statement follows directly from the definition of £1*. Let X be an irreducible character of @ and let 9 be an irreducible constituent of X IS)' Then X c £1* by the Frobenius reciprocity theorem. \) has the required form. 10) is the index of ramification of X with respect to Sj. 11) Let X be an irreducible character of (};. Let ~)
