AbstractIn Chapter 2 we develop the concept of total orthogonality. A number of necessary conditions are derived. Necessary and sufficient conditions for total orthogonality are obtained for 2-groups and for split extensions of elementary abelian 2-groups. A complete description is given for totally orthogonal groups whose character degrees are bounded by 2. Brauer's problem is reduced for Frobenius groups to the corresponding problems for Frobenius kernels and complements. In Chapter 3 classes of examples are presented illustrating the concepts and results of Chapter 2. It is shown, in particular, that 2-Sylow subgroups of finite reflection groups, and of alternating groups, are totally orthogonal.
