Title:Fusion-minimal groups
Room Seminar C3b
Date: Friday April 27, 12h-13h

Abstract: Every saturated fusion system $\mathcal{F}$ on the $p$-group $S$ has an associated collection of characteristic bisets.  These are $(S,S)$-bisets that determine $\mathcal{F}$, and are in turn determined by $\mathcal{F}$ up to a more-or-less explicit parameterization.  In particular, there is always a unique minimal $\mathcal{F}$-characteristic biset, $\Omega_\mathcal{F}$. If $G$ is a finite group containing $S$ as a Sylow $p$-subgroup and realizing $\mathcal{F}$, then $G$ is itself, when viewed as an $(S,S)$-biset, $\mathcal{F}$-characteristic.  If it happens that $_SG_S=\Omega_\mathcal{F}$ is the minimal biset for its fusion system, we say that $G$ is \emph{fusion-minimal}.

In joint work with Sune Reeh, it was shown that any strictly $p$-constrained group (i.e., one that satisfies $C_G(O_p(G))\leq O_p(G)$) is fusion minimal.  We conjecture that converse implication holds.  In this talk, based on joint work with Justin Lynd, we prove this to be the case when $p$ is odd and describe the obstruction to a complete proof.  Along the way, we will draw a connection with the module structure of block algebras and how this relates to the question at hand.
