Examples of support varieties for Hopf algebras with noncommutative tensor products

18 October 2013
Dave Benson

This talk is about some recent joint work with Sarah Witherspoon. The representations of some finite dimensional Hopf algebras have curious behaviour: Nonprojective modules may have projective tensor powers, and the variety of a tensor product of modules may not be contained in the intersection of their varieties. I shall describe a family of examples of such Hopf algebras and their modules, and the classification of left, right, and two-sided ideals in their stable module categories.
