Subgroups of odd depth—a necessary condition



This paper gives necessary and sufficient conditions for subgroups with trivial core to be of odd depth. We show that a subgroup with trivial core is an odd depth subgroup if and only if certain induced modules from it are faithful. Algebraically this gives a combinatorial condition that has to be satisfied by the subgroups with trivial core in order to be subgroups of a given odd depth. The condition can be expressed as a certain matrix with {0, 1}-entries to have maximal rank. The entries of the matrix correspond to the sizes of the intersections of the subgroup with any of its conjugate.
