  • In this paper we find irreducible characters of G=SL(k,Z/p^nZ) where n >= 2, k=2,3 and, p is an odd prime. In the case k=2 we give a construction for every irreducible character of G without calculating the character values. Our method is based on finding a normal subgroup of G and applying Clifford theory.
