## GAP implementation

The degrees of irreducible representations can be computed using GAP's CharacterDegrees and PSL functions:

```gap> CharacterDegrees(PSL(3,2));
[ [ 1, 1 ], [ 3, 2 ], [ 6, 1 ], [ 7, 1 ], [ 8, 1 ] ]```

The characters of irreducible representations can be computed using GAP's CharacterTable function:

```gap> Irr(CharacterTable(PSL(3,2)));
[ Character( CharacterTable( Group([ (4,6)(5,7), (1,2,4)(3,6,5) ]) ), [ 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 ] ), Character( CharacterTable( Group(
[ (4,6)(5,7), (1,2,4)(3,6,5) ]) ), [ 3, -1, 1, 0, E(7)^3+E(7)^5+E(7)^6, E(7)+E(7)^2+E(7)^4 ] ), Character( CharacterTable( Group(
[ (4,6)(5,7), (1,2,4)(3,6,5) ]) ), [ 3, -1, 1, 0, E(7)+E(7)^2+E(7)^4, E(7)^3+E(7)^5+E(7)^6 ] ), Character( CharacterTable( Group(
[ (4,6)(5,7), (1,2,4)(3,6,5) ]) ), [ 6, 2, 0, 0, -1, -1 ] ), Character( CharacterTable( Group([ (4,6)(5,7), (1,2,4)(3,6,5) ]) ), [ 7, -1, -1, 1, 0, 0
] ), Character( CharacterTable( Group([ (4,6)(5,7), (1,2,4)(3,6,5) ]) ), [ 8, 0, 0, -1, 1, 1 ] ) ]```
