I think I will have to use the port to GAP, as constructing characters of non-permutation groups doesn't seem to implemented. I could construct the character table, but that is maybe inefficient.Wed, 23 Nov 2016 21:13:05 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/35703/evaluating-characters-of-linear-algebraic-group/Comment by slelievre for <p>How would I evaluate the characters on $SL_2(\mathbb{F}_q)$ on some conjugacy class (which I know one element of).

Please provide some code to get helpers started. For example, defining the element you have in mind.
If you have tried things out that didn't work, you can also provide that, including the error messages.
To display blocks of code, either indent them with 4 spaces, or select the corresponding lines
and click the "code" button (the icon with '101 010').Thu, 24 Nov 2016 11:01:57 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/35703/evaluating-characters-of-linear-algebraic-group/?comment=35713#post-id-35713
