Stabilizing bisets

Let G be a finite group and let R be a commutative ring. We analyse the (G,G)-bisets which stabilize an indecomposable RG-module. We prove that the minimal ones are unique up to equivalence. This result has the same flavor as the uniqueness of vertices and sources up to conjugation and resembles also the theory of cuspidal characters in the context of Harish-Chandra induction for reductive groups, but it is different and very general. We show that stabilizing bisets have rather strong properties and we explore two situations where they occur. Moreover, we prove some specific results for simple modules and also for p-groups.
