The torsion group of endotrivial modules

Jon F. Carlson and Jacques Thévenaz

Vol. 9 (2015), No. 3, 749–765
Abstract

Let G be a finite group and let T(G) be the abelian group of equivalence classes of endotrivial kG-modules, where k is an algebraically closed field of characteristic p. We determine, in terms of the structure of G, the kernel of the restriction map from T(G) to T(S), where S is a Sylow p-subgroup of G, in the case when S is abelian. This provides a classification of all torsion endotrivial kG-modules in that case.
