Statement

Suppose G is a finite group. Suppose \sigma is an automorphism of G. Then, \sigma induces permutations both on the set of conjugacy classes C(G) of G and on the set of equivalence classes of irreducible representations I(G) of G over a splitting field. Both these automorphisms have the same cycle type.
