Endotrivial modules for group schemes

In joint work with Dan Nakano, we attempt a classification of endotrivial modules for finite group schemes. The endotrivial modules form part of the Picard group of self equivalences of the stable category of modules over the scheme. Of particular interest is the case of the infinitesimal subgroups of algebraic groups.
