Abstract

In this paper, we give the decomposition into irreducible characters of the restriction to the wreath product Zp−1 o Sw of any irreducible character of (Zp o Zp−1) o Sw, where p is any odd prime, w ≥ 0 is an integer, and Zp and Zp−1 denote the cyclic groups of order p and p − 1 respectively. This answers the question of how to decompose the restrictions to p-regular elements of irreducible characters of the symmetric group Sn in the Z-basis corresponding to the p-basic set of Sn described by Brunat and Gramain in [1]. The result is given in terms of the Littlewood-Richardson coefficients for the symmetric group.
