By a result of Hemmer, every simple Specht module of a finite symmetric group over a field of odd characteristic is a signed Young module. While Specht modules are parametrized by partitions, indecomposable signed Young modules are parametrized by certain pairs of partitions. The main result of this article establishes the signed Young module labels of simple Specht modules. Along the way we prove a number of results concerning indecomposable signed Young modules that are of independent interest. In particular, we determine the label of the indecomposable signed Young module obtained by tensoring a given indecomposable signed Young module with the sign represent...

2.7. Young subgroups, wreath products, Sylow p-subgroups of Sn. Let n ∈ Z+ . (a) For a partition, or, more generally, a composition λ = (λ1, . . . , λk) of n, we denote by Sλ = Sλ1 × · · · × Sλk the corresponding standard Young subgroup of Sn. (b) Let G be any finite group, and let H 6 Sn. We have the wreath product G ≀ H := {(g1, . . . , gn; σ) : g1, . . . , gn ∈ G, σ ∈ H}, whose multiplication is given by the trivial F Sα-module F (α) to Sk ≀ Sα. Moreover, if k is odd then s\gn(k) s\gn(k)⊗βt ∼= sgn(Sk ≀ Sβ) (see Remark 3.11). Now set [2] M. Broué, On Scott modules and p-permutation modules: an approach through the Brauer morphism, Proc. Amer.
