Abstract: Several years ago the authors, together with Dave Benson, conducted an investigation into the vanishing of cohomology for modules over group algebras [2]. It was mostly in the context of kG-modules where k is a field of finite characteristic p and G is a finite group whose order is divisible by p. Aside from some general considerations, the main results of [2] related the existence of kG-modules M with H*(G, M) = 0 to the structure of the centralizers of the p-elements in G. Specifically it was shown that ther…
