Group algebra extensions of depth one

Robert Boltje and Burkhard Külshammer

Vol. 5 (2011), No. 1, 63–73

A ring extension A B is said to have depth one if B is isomorphic to a direct summand of An as an (A,A)-bimodule, for some positive integer n. We prove group-theoretic characterizations of this property in the case kH kG, where H is a subgroup of a finite group G and k is a field. We determine when the source algebra of a block of kG with defect group P is a depth-one extension of kP.
