## Abstract

Let G be a finite group acting linearly on a finite-dimensional vector space V over a field K of characteristic p. Assume that p divides the order of G so that V is a modular representation and let P be a Sylow p-subgroup for G. De. ne the cohomological connectivity of the symmetric algebra S( V *) to be the smallest positive integer m such that H-m( G, S( V *)) not equal 0. We show that min {dim(K)(V-P) + m+ 1, dim(K)( V)} is a lower bound for the depth of S( V *) G. We characterize those representations for which the lower bound is sharp and give several examples of representations satisfying the criterion. In particular, we show that if G is p-nilpotent and P is cyclic, then, for any modular representation, the depth of S( V *) G is min {dim(K)(V-P) + 2, dim(K)(V)}.
