“On the Loewy structure
of the rational representations of a p-group as Mackey functors”

(BILKENT UNIVERSITY)

__Abstract__: Let k be a field of
characteristic p>0, and let G be a p-group of order p^n. We will give some
results about the Loewy structure of the rational representation functor R_k^G
which is regarded as a Mackey functor for G over k. For instance, we will show
that its Loewy length is greater than or equal to 2n+1, and the simple functor
S_{1,k} parametrized by the trivial subgroup of G appears in the n^th radical
layer of it. Assuming further that G is abelian, we will obtain quite complete
results about the simple functors appearing in the radical layers of R_k^G.
