# On the Divisibility of Character Values of the Symmetric Group

### Abstract

Fix a partition $\mu=(\mu_1,\dotsc,\mu_m)$ of an integer $k$ and positive integer $d$. For each $n>k$, let $\chi^\lambda_\mu$ denote the value of the irreducible character of $S_n$ at a permutation with cycle type $(\mu_1,\dotsc,\mu_m,1^{n-k})$. We show that the proportion of partitions $\lambda$ of $n$ such that $\chi^\lambda_\mu$ is divisible by $d$ approaches $1$ as $n$ approaches infinity.
