Publication# Jordan blocks of unipotent elements in some irreducible representations of classical groups in good characteristic

Abstract

Let $G$ be a classical group with natural module $V$ over an algebraically closed field of good characteristic. For every unipotent element $u$ of $G$, we describe the Jordan block sizes of $u$ on the irreducible $G$-modules which occur as composition factors of $V \otimes V^*$, $\wedge ^2(V)$, and $S^2(V)$. Our description is given in terms of the Jordan block sizes of the tensor square, exterior square, and the symmetric square of $u$, for which recursive formulae are known.

Module (mathematics)

In mathematics, a module is a generalization of the notion of vector space in which the field of scalars is replaced by a ring. The concept of module generalizes also the notion of abelian group, since the abelian groups are exactly the modules over the ring of integers. Like a vector space, a module is an additive abelian group, and scalar multiplication is distributive over the operation of addition between elements of the ring or module and is compatible with the ring multiplication.

Projective module

In mathematics, particularly in algebra, the class of projective modules enlarges the class of free modules (that is, modules with basis vectors) over a ring, by keeping some of the main properties of free modules. Various equivalent characterizations of these modules appear below. Every free module is a projective module, but the converse fails to hold over some rings, such as Dedekind rings that are not principal ideal domains.

Free module

In mathematics, a free module is a module that has a basis, that is, a generating set consisting of linearly independent elements. Every vector space is a free module, but, if the ring of the coefficients is not a division ring (not a field in the commutative case), then there exist non-free modules. Given any set S and ring R, there is a free R-module with basis S, which is called the free module on S or module of formal R-linear combinations of the elements of S. A free abelian group is precisely a free module over the ring Z of integers.
