The genus class group. I. (English) Zbl 0769.11040

In this paper a direct Hom-language approach is given for the genus class group. The latter is an important new concept which has arisen in the work on additive and multiplicative Galois module structure theory. The intended prospective applications of this paper are on the basic problem of relating modules to arithmetic character invariants.
