Definition

Let G be a finite group and p be a prime number. We say that G is p-core-free if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

The first two definitions are clearly equivalent. For equivalence with the third definition, refer p-core-free iff there exists a faithful irreducible representation over a field of characteristic p.
