Abstract

Let $G$ be a finite group with irreducible characters $\{\ldots, \chi,\ldots\}$ and $K = \mathbf{Q}(\ldots, \chi, \ldots)$ the field generated over the rationals by their values. We will prove: $$\text{If}\quad K = \mathbf{Q} (\text{or if}\quad \lbrack K: \mathbf{Q} \rbrack\quad\text{is odd) then}\quad \prod_{\chi(1)\text{odd}} \chi(1) \text{is a perfect square}.$$
