Dear Forum,

Maybe there is someone who is able to

answer some of the following questions :

1. Does the character table of a group with n

conjugacy classes only contain

character values which are algebraic of degree

strictly smaller than n ?

(Clearly, this is not a consequence of the fact that

character values of a group G are sums of

Exponent(G)'th roots of unity)

2. Let d be the 'determinant' of the character table

of a group G of order n

(in GAP : d := DeterminantMat(List(Irr(G),ValuesOfClassFunction))).

- Is d always different from zero ?

- Is d^2 always an integer which is divisible by n ?

(Obviously, d is determined up to the sign by the group G,

hence d^2 is uniquely determined by G)

Thanks in advance,

Stefan
