A functorial resolution of units of Burnside rings

Most of the structural properties - prime spectrum, species,  idempotents, ... - of the Burnside ring of a finite group have been precisely described a few years after its introduction in 1967. An important missing item in this list is its group of units. After a - non exhaustive - review of this subject, I will present some recent results on the functorial aspects of this group.
