Freyd's Generating Hypothesis for Groups with Periodic Cohomology

  • Sunil K. Chebolu (a1), J. Daniel Christensen (a2) and Ján Mináč (a2)

Abstract

Let $G$ be a finite group, and let $k$ be a field whose characteristic $p$ divides the order of $G$ . Freyd's generating hypothesis for the stable module category of $G$ is the statement that a map between finite-dimensional $kG$ -modules in the thick subcategory generated by $k$ factors through a projective if the induced map on Tate cohomology is trivial. We show that if $G$ has periodic cohomology, then the generating hypothesis holds if and only if the Sylow $p$ -subgroup of $G$ is ${{C}_{2}}$ or ${{C}_{3}}$ . We also give some other conditions that are equivalent to the $\text{GH}$ for groups with periodic cohomology.
