Abstract: Let be a finite group, let be a lattice, and let be a field of characteristic zero containing primitive roots of 1. Let be the quotient field of the group algebra of the abelian group . It is well known that if is quasipermutation and faithful, then is stably equivalent to . Let be the center of the division ring of generic matrices over . Let be the symmetric group on symbols. Let be a prime. We show that there exist a split group extension of by a elementary group, a faithful quasipermutation lattice , and a onecocycle in such that is stably isomorphic to . This represents a reduction of the problem since we have a quasipermutation action; however, the twist introduces a new level of complexity. The second result, which is a consequence of the first, is that, if is algebraically closed, there is a group extension of by an abelian group such that is stably equivalent to the invariants of the Noether setting .
