Monomial group


Symbol-free definition

A finite group is termed monomial (or sometimes, a M-group or M_1-group) with respect to a field k (whose characteristic does not divide the group order) if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

  1. Every irreducible representation of the group over k is induced from a one-dimensional representation of a subgroup, i.e., a linear character.
  2. Every finite-dimensional linear representation of the group over k is a monomial linear representation: it is a direct sum of representations induced from one-dimensional representations of subgroups.
