Benson, D., Kessar, R. ORCID: 0000-0002-1893-4237 & Linckelmann, M. (2021). On The BV Structure Of The Hochschild Cohomology Of Finite Group Algebras. Pacific Journal of Mathematics, 313(1), pp. 1-44. doi: 10.2140/pjm.2021.313.1


We give a simple algebraic recipe for calculating the components of the BV operator Δ on the Hochschild cohomology of a finite group algebra with respect to the centraliser decomposition. We use this to investigate properties of Δ and to make some computations for some particular finite groups.
