Kessar, R. ORCID: 0000-0002-1893-4237, Linckelmann, M., Lynd, J. & Semeraro, J. (2019). Weight conjectures for fusion systems. Advances in Mathematics, 357, article number 106825. doi: 10.1016/j.aim.2019.106825


Many of the conjectures of current interest in the representation theory of finite groups in characteristic pare local-to-global statements, in that they predict consequencesfor the representations of a finite group G given data about the representations of the p-local subgroups of G. The local structure of a block of a group algebra is encoded in the fusion system of the block together with a compatible family of Kulshammer-Puig cohomology classes. Motivated by conjectures in block theory, we state and initiate investigation of a number of seemingly local conjectures for arbitrary triples (S,F,α) consisting of a saturated fusion system F on a finite p-group S and a compatible family α.
