Realizing large gaps in cohomology for symmetric group modules

David J. Hemmer

Vol. 6 (2012), No. 4, 825–832
Abstract

Using results of the author with Cohen and Nakano, we find examples of Young modules Y λ for the symmetric group Σd for which the Tate cohomology Ĥi(Σd,Y λ) does not vanish identically, but vanishes for approximately 1 3d32 consecutive degrees. We conjecture these vanishing ranges are maximal among all Σd-modules with nonvanishing cohomology. The best known upper bound on such vanishing ranges stands at (d 1)2, due to work of Benson, Carlson and Robinson. Particularly striking, and perhaps counterintuitive, is that these Young modules have maximum possible complexity.
