Definition

Suppose G is a finite group. Pick a characteristic that is either zero or a prime not dividing the order of G. The field generated by character values for G in that characteristic is the smallest field in that characteristic containing the values of all the characters of irreducible representations of G over a splitting field in that characteristic.
