characterTable -- returns the character table of the symmetric group



This method construct the irreducible characters of $S_n$. The method works by recursively calculating the character tables for the permutation modules of $S_n$. Then applying Gram-Schimdt algorithm to this characters using the inner product of characters we obtain the irreducible characters of $S_n$
