Publication# Equivalences between blocks of cohomological Mackey algebras

Abstract

Let G be a finite group and (K, O, k) be a p-modular system “large enough”. Let R = O or k. There is a bijection between the blocks of the group algebra RG and the central primitive idempotents (the blocks) of the so-called cohomological Mackey algebra coμR(G). Here, we prove that a so-called permeable derived equivalence between two blocks of group algebras implies the existence of a derived equivalence between the corresponding blocks of cohomological Mackey algebras. In particular, in the context of Broué’s abelian defect group conjecture, if two blocks are splendidly derived equivalent, then the corresponding blocks of cohomological Mackey algebras are derived equivalent.

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.

Group ring

In algebra, a group ring is a free module and at the same time a ring, constructed in a natural way from any given ring and any given group. As a free module, its ring of scalars is the given ring, and its basis is the set of elements of the given group. As a ring, its addition law is that of the free module and its multiplication extends "by linearity" the given group law on the basis. Less formally, a group ring is a generalization of a given group, by attaching to each element of the group a "weighting factor" from a given ring.

Modular arithmetic

In mathematics, modular arithmetic is a system of arithmetic for integers, where numbers "wrap around" when reaching a certain value, called the modulus. The modern approach to modular arithmetic was developed by Carl Friedrich Gauss in his book Disquisitiones Arithmeticae, published in 1801. A familiar use of modular arithmetic is in the 12-hour clock, in which the day is divided into two 12-hour periods. If the time is 7:00 now, then 8 hours later it will be 3:00.

Let G be a finite group and R be a commutative ring. The Mackey algebra μR(G) shares a lot of properties with the group algebra RG however, there are some differences. For example, the group algebra i
