Let $G$ be a finite group, $p$ a prime and $B$ a Brauer $p$-block of $G$ with defect group $D$. We prove that if the number of irreducible ordinary characters in $B$ is $5$ then $D\cong C_5, C_7, D_8$ or $Q_8$, assuming that the Alperin--McKay conjecture holds for $B$.

et p be a prime, B a p-block of a finite group G and b its Brauer correspondent. According to the Alperin-McKay Conjecture, there exists a bijection between the set of irreducible characters of height zero of B and those of b. In this paper, we show that such a bijection can be found with the additional property of being compatible with divisibilit...

We describe finite groups whose principal block contains only characters of prime power degree.

Suppose that is a Brauer ‐block of a finite group with defect group . If exactly contains four ordinary irreducible characters, then we show that has order four or five, assuming the Alperin–McKay conjecture holds for .

A recent question of Gabriel Navarro asks whether it is true that the derived length of a defect group is less than or equal to the number of degrees of irreducible characters in a block. In this article, we bring new evidence towards the validity of this statement.

Suppose that $B$ is a Brauer $p$-block with defect group $D$. If $B$ exactly contains 4 irreducible characters, then we show that $D$ has order 4 or 5, assuming the Alperin--McKay conjecture.

Let G be a finite group. We prove that if the set of degrees of characters in the principal p-block of G has size at most 2 then G is p-solvable, and G/Op′(G) has a metabelian normal Sylow p-subgroup. The general question of proving that if an arbitrary p-block has two degrees then their defect groups are metabelian remains open.

Recently, G. Mason has produced a counterexample of order 128 to a conjecture in conformal field theory and tensor category theory in [Ma]. Here we easily produce an infinite family of counterexamples, the smallest of which has order 72.
