Abstract: A classical theorem of Burnside asserts that if $ \chi $ is a faithful complex character for the finite group G, then every irreducible character of G is a constituent of some power $ {\chi ^n}$ of $ \chi $. Fifty years after this appeared, Steinberg generalized it to a result on semigroup algebras $ K[G]$ with K an arbitrary field and with G a semigroup, finite or infinite. Five years later, Rieffel showed that the theorem really concerns bialgebras and Hopf algebras. In this note, we simplify and amplify the latter work.
