Abstract: Let be a connected algebraic group defined over a finite field . For each irreducible character of , we denote by the multiplicity of in the restriction of to . In the case where is reductive with connected center and is simple modulo center, Kawanaka determined for almost all cases, and then Lusztig gave a general formula for . In the case where the center of is not connected, such a result is not known. In this paper we determine , up to some minor ambiguity, in the case where is the special linear group.

We also discuss, for any , the relationship between with the theory of Shintani descent in the case where is a connected algebraic group.
