On symmetric quotients of symmetric algebras

Kessar, R., Koshitani, S. & Linckelmann, M. (2015). On symmetric quotients of symmetric algebras. Journal of Algebra, 442, pp. 423-437. doi: 10.1016/j.jalgebra.2014.05.035


We investigate symmetric quotient algebras of symmetric algebras, with an emphasis on finite group algebras over a complete discrete valuation ring O. Using elementary methods, we show that if an ordinary irreducible character χ of a finite group G gives rise to a symmetric quotient over O which is not a matrix algebra, then the decomposition numbers of the row labelled by χ are all divisible by the characteristic p of the residue field of O.
