We investigate the invariant rings of two classes of finite groups G ≤ GL(n, Fq) which are generated by a number of generalized transvections with an invariant subspace H over a finite field Fq in the modular case. We name these groups generalized transvection groups. One class is concerned with a given invariant subspace which involves roots of unity. Constructing quotient groups and tensors, we deduce the invariant rings and study their Cohen-Macaulay and Gorenstein properties. The other is concerned with different invariant subspaces which have the same dimension. We provide a explicit classification of these groups and calculate their invariant rings.
