Example text

6) The following conjecture from [Benson 2001] relates the modules T (I p [n]) described in this section and the modules κV described in the previous section. 1. If p is the homogeneous prime ideal corresponding to a closed homogeneous irreducible subvariety V of dimension d in V G , then there is an isomorphism T (Ip [n]) ∼ = Ω−n−d κV in StMod(kG). This conjecture is known to hold if H ∗ (G, k)p is Cohen–Macaulay. In the next few sections, we describe how to view this conjecture in terms of local cohomology and Grothendieck’s local duality.

2) We can reinterpret the definition of quasiregular sequence in terms of cohomology of modules as follows, and in the process give some sort of explanation of where the condition j ≥ n1 +· · ·+ni comes from. 1. Consider the short exact sequence 0 → Lζ1 → Ωn1 (k) → k → 0. The long exact sequence in cohomology gives (for j ≥ n 1 ) an exact sequence ζ1 · · · → H j (G, Lζ1 ) → H j−n1 (G, k) −→ H j (G, k) → H j+1 (G, Lζ1 ) → · · · So we have H j+1 (G, Lζ1 ) ∼ = (H ∗ (G, k)/(ζ1 ))j for j ≥ n1 . Working inductively, for each i = 0, .

If H is a subgroup of a finite group G and M is a kG-module, then the transfer is a map TrH,G : H n (H, M ) → H n (G, M ). It is defined by choosing a set of left coset representatives g i of H in G. Let P∗ be a projective resolution of k as a kG-module. Given a representative cocycle, which is a kH-module homomorphism ζˆ : Pn → M , the transfer TrH,G (ζ) is ˆ which is a kG-module homomorphism. represented by i gi (ζ), The reason why the transfer map is relevant is that if H is a subgroup of G and M is a kG-module, then TrH,G is H ∗ (G, k)-linear, when H ∗ (H, M ) is viewed as a right module over H ∗ (G, k) via the restriction map H ∗ (G, k) → H ∗ (H, k).
