## Irreducible representations

### Interpretation as general linear group of degree two

The group is a general linear group of degree two over field:F3. Compare with linear representation theory of general linear group of degree two over a finite field.

## Character table

FACTS TO CHECK AGAINST (for characters of irreducible linear representations over a splitting field):Orthogonality relations: Character orthogonality theorem | Column orthogonality theoremSeparation results(basically says rows independent, columns independent): Splitting implies characters form a basis for space of class functions|Character determines representation in characteristic zeroNumerical facts: Characters are cyclotomic integers | Size-degree-weighted characters are algebraic integersCharacter value facts: Irreducible character of degree greater than one takes value zero on some conjugacy class| Conjugacy class of more than average size has character value zero for some irreducible character | Zero-or-scalar lemma

In the table below, we denote by a fixed square root of -2.
