Let be a finite group and be the set of all irreducible complex character degrees of counting multiplicities.
Let be an odd prime number and M = PGL(2,p), M = Z2xPSL(2,p) or . In this paper we prove that is uniquely determined by its order and some information on its character degrees. As a consequence of our results we prove that if is a finite group such that , then . This implies that is uniquely determined by the structure of its complex group algebra.
