Abstract

The low-dimensional projective irreducible representations in cross characteristics of the projective special linear group Ln (q) are investigated. If n ≥ 3 and (n,q) ≠ (3,2), (3,4), (4,2), (4,3), all such representations of the first degree (which is (qn - q)/(q - 1) - κn with κn = 0 or 1) and the second degree (which is (qn - 1)/(q - 1)) come from Weil representations. We show that the gap between the second and the third degree is roughly q2n-4.
