Donovan's conjecture by class of group or block

In the table, the column headed Donovan's conjecture indicates whether the conjecture is known over [math]k[/math] or [math]\mathcal{O}[/math].

Note that knowing the [math]\mathcal{O}[/math]-Donovan conjecture or Puig's conjecture for blocks for a class of groups does not necessarily mean that the [math]\mathcal{O}[/math]-lifts or source algebras of the [math]k[/math]-Morita equivalence classes involved are known. This is only known for elements of the Morita equivalence class which occur as blocks of groups in that class.
