Abstract: The p-modular representations of a finite group that are induced from a p-subgroup are investigated. A series of three results describing how these representations are distributed into p-blocks are presented. Several applications are discussed, including the result that there are a finite number of indecomposable p-modular representations (up to equivalence) in a p-block of a group if and only if its defect group is cyclic.
