Let G be a finite group and C(G) be the family of representative conjugacy classes of‎ ‎subgroups of G‎. ‎The matrix whose H,K-entry is the number of ‎fixed points of the set G/K under the action of H is called the‎ ‎table of marks of G where H,K run through all elements in‎ C(G)‎. Shinsaku Fujita for the first time introduced the term “markaracter” to discuss marks for permutation representations and characters for linear representations in a common basis. In this paper, we compute these tables for some classes of finite groups.
