Abstract: With one exception, we determine the vertices of simple modules for symmetric groups in characteristic 2 and 3 which are contained in blocks of weight at most 4 and at most 3, respectively. Moreover, we provide some information on the sources of the modules in question.

Keywords: block, defect group, simple module, source, symmetric group, vertex

Classification (MSC2000): 20C20, 20C30
