Abstract

We investigate the nilpotent blocks of positive defect of the quasisimple groups for the prime 2. We show that every nilpotent block of a quasisimple group has abelian defect groups, and give explicit characterisations in many cases. A conjecture of Puig concerning the recognition of nilpotent blocks is also shown to hold for these groups.
