### Abstract

Let E be an elementary abelian p-group of rank r and let k be an algebraically closed field of characteristic p. We prove that if M is a kE-module of stable constant Jordan type [a1]...[at

] with

j

aj

= min(r -1, p-2) then a1

=···=

at

= 1. The proof uses the theory of Chern classes of vector bundles on projective

space.
