Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we present a general method for computing the irreducible components of the permutation modules of the symmetric groups over a field $ F$ of characteristic 0. We apply this machinery to determine the decomposition into irreducible submodules of the $ F[S_n]$-permutation module on the right cosets of the normaliser in $ S_n$ of the subgroup generated by a permutation of type $ (3,3)$.
