Irreducible characters with equal roots in the groups Sn and An
We show that treating of (non-trivial) pairs of irreducible characters of the group Sn sharing the same set of roots on one of the sets An and Sn \ An is divided into three parts. This, in particular, implies that any pair of such characters χα and χβ (α and β are respective partitions of a number n) possesses the following property: lengths d(α) and d(β) of principal diagonals of Young diagrams for α and β differ by at most 1.
