Abstract: For a tensor triangulated $ \mathbb{Z}/p$-category $ \mathscr{K}$, with spectrum  $ \operatorname{Spc}(\mathscr{K})$, we construct an injective group homomorphism $ \check{\operatorname{H}}^1 (\operatorname{Spc}(\mathscr{K}),\mathbb{G}_{\opera... ...bb{Z}[1/p]\hookrightarrow\operatorname{Pic} (\mathscr{K})\otimes\mathbb{Z}[1/p]$, where $ \operatorname{Pic}(\mathscr{K})$ is the group of $ \otimes$-invertible objects of  $ \mathscr{K}$. In modular representation theory, we prove that this homomorphism induces a rational isomorphism between the Picard group of the projective support variety and the group of endotrivial representations.
