The purpose of this thesis is to discuss the rôle of certain types of quiver which appear in the modular representation theory of finite groups. It is our concern to study two different types of quiver. First of all we construct the ordinary quiver of certain blocks of defect 2 of the symmetric group, and then apply our results to the alternating group and to the theory of partitions. Secondly, we consider connected components of the stable Auslander-Reiten quiver of certain groups G with normal subgroup N. The main interest lies in comparing the tree class of components of N-modules, with the tree class of components of these modules induced up to G.
