Large Dimension Homomorphism Spaces Between Specht Modules for Symmetric Groups

By Craig J. Dodge


Let $F$ be a field of characteristic $p$. We show that $\Hom_{F\Sigma_n}(S^\lambda, S^\mu)$ can have arbitrarily large dimension as $n$ and $p$ grow, where $S^\lambda$ and $S^\mu$ are Specht modules for the symmetric group $\Sigma_n$. Similar results hold for the Weyl modules of the general linear group. Every previously computed example has been at most one-dimensional, with the exception of Specht modules over a field of characteristic two. The proof uses the work of Chuang and Tan, providing detailed information about the radical series of Weyl modules in Rouquier blocks
