## Abstract

We study the cohomology modules H-i(G,R) of a p-group G acting on a ring R of characteristic p, for i>0. In particular, we are interested in the Cohen-Macaulay property and the depth of H-i(G,R) regarded as an R-G-module. We first determine the support of H-i(G,R), which turns out to be independent of i. Then we study the Cohen-Macaulay property for H-1(G,R). Further results are restricted to the special case that G is cyclic and R is the symmetric algebra of a vector space on which G acts. We determine the depth of H-i(G,R) for i odd and obtain results in certain cases for i even. Along the way, we determine the degrees in which the transfer map Tr-G R -->R-G has non-zero image.
