The Young lattice is the poset of all partitions of the set of positive integers, namely almost everywhere null never increasing sequences of non-negative integers with positive sum. Studying the connections between wreath products \(G\wr S_ n\) of a finite group G with a symmetric groups \(S_ n\) and powers of the Young lattice, the author is able to give a complete set of mututally orthogonal eigenvectors for the linear mapping \(Ind^ n_{n-1}\circ Res^ n_{n-1}\) of the vector space of class functions of \(G\wr S_ n\), where \(Ind^ n_{n-1}\) is the induction mapping from (the vector space of class functions of) \(G\wr S_{n-1}\) to \(G\wr S_ n\) and \(Res^ n_{n-1}\) is the restriction mapping from (the vector space of class functions of) \(G\wr S_ n\) to \(G\wr S_{n-1}\).
