Publication# Counting conjugacy classes of cyclic subgroups for fusion systems

Abstract

Thévenaz [6] made an interesting observation that the number of conjugacy classes of cyclic subgroups in a finite group G is equal to the rank of the matrix of the numbers of double cosets in G. We give another proof of this fact and present a fusion system version of it. In particular we use finite groups realizing the fusion system F as in our previous work [3].

Finite group

In abstract algebra, a finite group is a group whose underlying set is finite. Finite groups often arise when considering symmetry of mathematical or physical objects, when those objects admit just a finite number of structure-preserving transformations. Important examples of finite groups include cyclic groups and permutation groups. The study of finite groups has been an integral part of group theory since it arose in the 19th century.

Conjugacy class

In mathematics, especially group theory, two elements and of a group are conjugate if there is an element in the group such that This is an equivalence relation whose equivalence classes are called conjugacy classes. In other words, each conjugacy class is closed under for all elements in the group. Members of the same conjugacy class cannot be distinguished by using only the group structure, and therefore share many properties. The study of conjugacy classes of non-abelian groups is fundamental for the study of their structure.

Cyclic group

In group theory, a branch of abstract algebra in pure mathematics, a cyclic group or monogenous group is a group, denoted Cn, that is generated by a single element. That is, it is a set of invertible elements with a single associative binary operation, and it contains an element g such that every other element of the group may be obtained by repeatedly applying the group operation to g or its inverse. Each element can be written as an integer power of g in multiplicative notation, or as an integer multiple of g in additive notation.

Let G be a finite group and (K, O, k) be a p-modular system. Let R = O or k. There is a bijection between the blocks of the group algebra and the blocks of the so-called p-local Mackey algebra mu(1)(R
