# First publication of Pierre Deligne

The first publication of Pierre Deligne was Congruences sur le nombre de sous-groupes d’ordre $p^k$ dans un groupe fini, Bull. Soc. Math. Belg. XVIII 2 (1966) pp. 129–132. I do not have access to this publication. What exactly did he prove here? Translated from the French the title means Congruences concerning the number of subgroups of order $p^k$ in a finite group.

Let $G$ be a group of order $p^sh$, with $(p,h)=1$ and let $d_k$ be the number of subgroups of $G$ of order $p^{s−k},\,\, 0\leq k\leq s.$ The main results are that:
1. $d_k=1 \mod p$
2. If a Sylow p-subgroup S is elementary abelian or cyclic, then $d_k$ is congruent mod $p^{k+1}$ to the number of subgroups of S of order $p^{s−k}$.
3. If S is not cyclic then $d_1=1+p \mod p^2$.
