Abstract
This paper contains two essentially independent results in the invariant theory of finite groups. First
we prove that, for any faithful representation of a nontrivial pgroup over a field of characteristic p, the ring
of vector invariants ofmcopies of that representation is not CohenMacaulay form 3. In the second section
of the paper we use Poincar´e series methods to produce upper bounds for the degrees of the generators for
the ring of invariants as long as that ring is Gorenstein. We prove that, for a finite nontrivial group G and
a faithful representation of dimension n with n > 1, if the ring of invariants is Gorenstein then the ring is
generated in degrees less than or equal to n(jGj ? 1). If the ring of invariants is a hypersurface, the upper
bound can be improved to [G].
