Involutions and Free Pairs of Bass Cyclic Units in Integral Group Rings

Let ZG be the integral group ring of the finite nonabelian group G over the ring of integers Z, and let ∗ be an involution of ZG that extends one of G. If x and y are elements of G, we investigate when pairs of the form (uk,m(x), uk,m(x ∗)), or (uk,m(x), uk,m(y)), formed respectively by Bass cyclic and ∗-symmetric Bass cyclic units, generate a free… CONTINUE READING
