Abstract

Let $G$ be a finite group. To a set of subgroups of order two we associate a $\mod 2$ Hecke algebra and construct a homomorphism, $\psi$, from its units to the class-group of ${\bf Z}[G]$. We show that this homomorphism takes values in the subgroup, $D({\bf Z}[G])$. Alternative constructions of Chinburg invariants arising from the Galois module structure of higher-dimensional algebraic $K$-groups of rings of algebraic integers often differ by elements in the image of $\psi$. As an application we show that two such constructions coincide.
