In mathematics, a mirabolic subgroup of the general linear group GLn(k) is a subgroup consisting of automorphisms fixing a given non-zero vector in kn. Mirabolic subgroups were introduced by (Gel'fand & Kazhdan 1975). The image of a mirabolic subgroup in the projective general linear group is a parabolic subgroup consisting of all elements fixing a given point of projective space. The word "mirabolic" is a portmanteau of "miraculous parabolic". As an algebraic group, a mirabolic subgroup is the semidirect product of a vector space with its group of automorphisms, and such groups are called mirabolic groups. The mirabolic subgroup is used to define the Kirillov model of a representation of the general linear group.

As an example, the group of all matrices of the form \( {\displaystyle {\begin{pmatrix}a&b\\0&1\end{pmatrix}}} \)where a is a nonzero element of the field k and b is any element of k is a mirabolic subgroup of the 2-dimensional general linear group.
