Irreducible Representations of SU(n) with Prime Power Degree

Abstract. The correspondence between irreducible representations of the symmetric group Sn and partitions of n is well-known. Less well-known is the connection between irreducible representations of the special unitary group SU(n) and partitions with less than n parts. This paper uses this correspondence to classify the irreducible representations of SU(n) with prime power degree.
