# Eulerian Numbers, Foulkes Characters and
Lefschetz Characters of the Symmetric Group

**Abstract.**
The aim of the paper is to point out a connection between
the characters which Foulkes introduced to give a
representation theoretical generalization of Eulerian numbers
and certain Lefschetz characters of the symmetric group which
Björner mentioned in a talk at an earlier Séminaire
Lotharingien and which were described in detail by Stanley
(J. Combinatorial Theory, Ser. A **32** (1982), 132-161). The
missing link is a theorem on the irreducible constituents of
Foulkes' characters.
