This article describes the linear representation theory of groups arising as the 2-Sylow subgroup of symmetric group.

All these groups are rational groups, i.e., any two elements of such a group that generate the same cyclic subgroup are conjugate. Hence, all the characters in characteristic zero are rational-valued. In fact, all these groups are rational-representation groups: all the representations in characteristic zero can be realized over the rational numbers.

## Particular cases

In the table below, we list only even values of . This is because for even ,the 2-Sylow subgroup of is isomorphic to the 2-Sylow subgroup of .
