Freyd's Generating Hypothesis for Groups with Periodic Cohomology
Let $G$ be a finite group, and let $k$ be a field whose characteristic $p$
divides
the order of $G$.
Freyd's generating hypothesis for the stable module category of
$G$ is the statement that a map between finitedimensional
$kG$modules in the thick subcategory generated by $k$ factors through a
projective if the induced map on Tate cohomology is trivial. We show that if
$G$
has periodic cohomology, then the generating hypothesis holds if and only if
the Sylow
$p$subgroup of $G$ is $C_2$ or $C_3$. We also give some other conditions
that are equivalent to the GH
for groups with periodic cohomology.

Endomorphisms of Two Dimensional Jacobians and Related Finite Algebras
Zarhin proves that if $C$ is the curve $y^2=f(x)$ where
$\textrm{Gal}_{\mathbb{Q}}(f(x))=S_n$ or $A_n$, then
${\textrm{End}}_{\overline{\mathbb{Q}}}(J)=\mathbb{Z}$. In seeking to examine his
result in the genus $g=2$ case supposing other Galois groups, we
calculate
$\textrm{End}_{\overline{\mathbb{Q}}}(J)\otimes_{\mathbb{Z}} \mathbb{F}_2$
for a genus $2$ curve where $f(x)$ is irreducible.
In particular, we show that unless the Galois group is $S_5$ or
$A_5$, the Galois group does not determine ${\textrm{End}}_{\overline{\mathbb{Q}}}(J)$.

Orbits and Stabilizers for Solvable Linear Groups
We extend a result of Noritzsch,
which describes the orbit sizes in the action of a
Frobenius group $G$ on a finite vector space $V$ under
certain conditions, to a more general class of finite
solvable groups $G$.
This result has applications in computing
irreducible character degrees of finite groups.
Another application, proved here, is a result
concerning the structure of certain groups with
few complex irreducible character degrees.

Roots of Simple Modules
We introduce roots of indecomposable modules over group algebras of finite groups,
and we investigate some of their properties. This allows us to correct an error
in Landrock's book which has to do with roots of simple modules.
