SchurRings :: degree(ClassFunction)

degree(ClassFunction) -- Degree of virtual character

Synopsis

Description

For a virtual character ch of a symmetric group on n letters, the degree of ch is n.

i1 : S = schurRing(s,5);
i2 : ch = classFunction s_(3,1,1)

o2 = ClassFunction{{1, 1, 1, 1, 1} => 6}
                   {2, 2, 1} => -2
                   {5} => 1

o2 : ClassFunction
i3 : degree ch

o3 = 5
