This bijection arises because when, each block of G with defect group D has a unique Brauer correspondent block of H, which also has defect group D ...

Famous quotes containing the words group and/or defect:

    The boys think they can all be athletes, and the girls think they can all be singers. That’s the way to fame and success. a group blacks must give up their illusions.
    Kristin Hunter (b. 1931)
