Describing units of integral group rings up to commensurability

Eisele, F., Kiefer, A. & Van Gelder, I. (2015). Describing units of integral group rings up to commensurability. Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra, 219(7), pp. 2901-2916. doi: 10.1016/j.jpaa.2014.09.031


We restrict the types of 2×2-matrix rings which can occur as simple components in the Wedderburn decomposition of the rational group algebra of a finite group. This results in a description up to commensurability of the group of units of the integral group ring ZG for all finite groups G that do not have a non-commutative Frobenius complement as a quotient.
