Nilpotent blocks of quasisimple groups for odd primes

  • Jianbei An EMAIL logo and Charles W. Eaton


We investigate the nilpotent blocks of positive defect of the quasisimple groups for odd primes. In particular, it is shown that every nilpotent block of a quasisimple group has abelian defect groups. A conjecture of Puig concerning the recognition of nilpotent blocks is also shown for these groups.
