Shaped with the simplest on hand fighter pilots within the Southwest Pacific, the 475th Fighter team was once the puppy venture of 5th Air strength leader, common George C Kenney. From the time the crowd entered wrestle in August 1943 till the tip of the conflict it used to be the quickest scoring workforce within the Pacific and remained one of many crack fighter devices within the whole US military Air Forces with a last overall of a few 550 credited aerial victories. among its pilots have been the best American aces of all time, Dick Bong and Tom McGuire, with high-scoring pilots Danny Roberts and John Loisel additionally serving with the 475th. one of the campaigns and battles specific during this quantity are such well-known names as Dobodura, the Huon Gulf, Oro Bay, Rabaul, Hollandia, the Philippines and Luzon.

He has also computed a large number of modular character tables, intended for a later A lr ILA§ publication. A§ groups. He has greatly increased the usefulness of this A If D.. A§ by adding this and other information, and over the last few years has cheerfully shouldered the enormous task of gathering and transforming our untidy heaps of material into a form fit for ppblication. xxxiii My own function was to initiate and control the entire project, to collaborate with each of the above, and (eventually) to write this Introduction.

2. Ordering of classes and characters Many table compilers arrange the conjugacy classes in an order which to some extent reflects the power maps. , having powers in the original class. The merits of such arrangements are usually more evident to the compiler than the user, who is seldom properly informed about the principles (if any) of the arrangement, and so cannot use the implied power map information. It is better to choose a simpler arrangement, and explicitly indicate the power maps. A§, the conjugacy classes within a given coset are arranged firstly, by increasing succession of n, the order of their elements; secondly, for elements with the same n, by decreasing succession of N, their centralizer order; thirdly, for elements with the same nand N, by increasing succession of d, the degree of the algebraic number field generated by their character values (so that rational elements come first); and fourthly, for elements with the same n, N, and d, in a manner which seems best compatible with the p' parts, so that, other things being equal, we prefer to arrange elements of order 10 in the same succession as the elements of order 5 that are their odd parts.

An extremely valuable test which we recommend when the above simple rules of thumb have failed is to compute the skew squares of one or more characters X, and check their inner products with selected irreducibles. One should also check the consistency of restriction maps from groups to subgroups whose tables are also known. Of course it can be a good idea to check a doubtful point against another published table, which might well be the one from which ours was originally derived. A disagreement probably means that we believed we had found and corrected an error in the source table, but of course we could be wrong, or could have inadvertently introduced some error ourselves.
