Let G be a finite group and N a G-module of finite type. If \(i=1\) or 2 then denote by \(\text{Russian{Sh}}^ i_{\omega}(G,N)\) the kernel of the restriction homomorphism \(H^ i(G,N)\to \prod_{g\in G}H^ i(<g>,N).\) The authors consider the case when G is a subgroup of the Weyl group \(W(R)\), where R is the root system \(A_ n\), \(B_ n\), \(C_ n\) or \(D_ n\), and find the groups \(\text{Russian{Sh}}^ 1_{\omega}(G,P(R))\) and \(\text{Russian{Sh}}^ 2_{\omega}(G,Q(R))\), where \(P(R)\) is the lattice of the weights and \(Q(R)\) the lattice generated by the roots. As it is explained in this note, these groups provide an arithmetical information about the maximal tori of semisimple adjoint groups and about rational surfaces. No proofs are given.
