For each C = (X , K) ∈ Sup(G); we see that N is C-normal if and only if C ≤ M(N ) ∗ M(G/N ), which is true if and only Irr(G/N ) is the union of some members of X .
Supercharacter theories and Schur rings
Note that since each part of M outside N is a union of N -cosets, we have |M| = |K| + |L| − 1; likewise since each member of Z outside Irr(G/N ) is a union of sets of the form Irr(G|ψ), we have |Z | = |X | + |Y | − 1.
