If $G$ is a finite group and $\chi$, the character of a complex representation, then the Frobenius-Schur indicator is given by \[ \frac{1}{|G|}\sum_{g\in G} \chi(g^2).\] It is $0$, $1$, or $-1$ depending on whether the representation is of complex type, real type, or quaternionic type respectively.
