Abstract

In this paper, we continue our study of the tensor product structure of category $\mathcal W$ of weight modules over the Hopf-Ore extensions $kG(\chi^{-1}, a, 0)$ of group algebras $kG$, where $k$ is an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero. We first describe the tensor product decomposition rules for all indecomposable weight modules under the assumption that the orders of $\chi$ and $\chi(a)$ are different. Then we describe the Green ring $r(\mathcal W)$ of the tensor category $\mathcal W$. It is shown that $r(\mathcal W)$ is isomorphic to the polynomial algebra over the group ring $\mathbb{Z}\hat{G}$ in one variable when $|\chi(a)|=|\chi|=\infty$, and that $r(\mathcal W)$ is isomorphic to the quotient ring of the polynomial algebra over the group ring $\mathbb{Z}\hat{G}$ in two variables modulo a principle ideal when $|\chi(a)|<|\chi|=\infty$. When $|\chi(a)|\le|\chi|<\infty$, $r(\mathcal W)$ is isomorphic to the quotient ring of a skew group ring $\mathbb{Z}[X]\sharp\hat{G}$ modulo some ideal, where $\mathbb{Z}[X]$ is a polynomial algebra over $\mathbb{Z}$ in infinitely many variables.
