Simple modules as submodules and quotients of symmetric powers

János Kollár, Pham Huu Tiep

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Let G be any finite group, F any field, and V any finite-dimensional, faithful FG-module. If W is any irreducible FG-module, we show that there is an integer 1≤m≤|G| (depending on W) such that, for any integer k≥0, W is both a submodule and a quotient of Symm+k|G|(V).
