Brauer's permutation lemma

Facts
Brauer's permutation lemma has the following equivalent forms:
# If a row permutation and a column permutation have the same effect on a nonsingular matrix, then they must have the same [[cycle type]] i.e., the same number of cycles of a given each lengthin their [[cycle decomposition]]s.
# The [[symmetric group]] is a [[conjugacy-closed subgroup]] in the [[general linear group]] over any [[field]] of characteristic zero
# If two permutation matrices are conjugate in the general linear group over a field of characteristic zero, then they have the same [[cycle type]] (i.e., the same number of cycles of each lengthin their [[cycle decomposition]]s), vizi.e., are conjugate in the symmetric group itself
# If two permutation representations of a [[cyclic group]] are conjugate in the general linear group over a field of characteristic zero, they are also conjugate in the symmetric group

===Opposite facts=== * [[Analogue of Brauer's permutation lemma fails to hold over rationals for every non-cyclic finite group]]: If $G$ is a non-cyclic finite group, we can find two permutation representations $\varphi_1, \varphi_2$ of $G$ that are equivalent as linear representations over the rational numbers but not as permutation representations.* [[Symmetric group of degree six or higher is not weak subset-conjugacy-closed in general linear group over rationals]]
