## Degrees of irreducible representations

FACTS TO CHECK AGAINST FOR DEGREES OF IRREDUCIBLE REPRESENTATIONS OVER SPLITTING FIELD:Divisibility facts: degree of irreducible representation divides group order | degree of irreducible representation divides index of abelian normal subgroupSize bounds: order of inner automorphism group bounds square of degree of irreducible representation| degree of irreducible representation is bounded by index of abelian subgroup| maximum degree of irreducible representation of group is less than or equal to product of maximum degree of irreducible representation of subgroup and index of subgroupCumulative facts: sum of squares of degrees of irreducible representations equals order of group | number of irreducible representations equals number of conjugacy classes | number of one-dimensional representations equals order of abelianization

It turns out that nilpotency class and order determine degrees of irreducible representations for groups up to prime-fourth order, so there are only three possibilities for the degrees of irreducible representations for groups of order 81, based on whether the nilpotency class is 1, 2, or 3.
