Abstract: I will discuss modules M over nilpotent group algebras kH, where k is a field and H is a finitely generated nilpotent group of class 2. The work follows the methods of of Bieri , Brookes, Groves and Strebel. For some questions relevant to this theory I have been seeking answers in the context of tensor products (over the field k) of kH-modules. These questions are related to a conjecture of J.R.J. Groves.
