Adams spectral sequence and higher torsion in MSp*.

Boris I. Botvinnik, Stanley O. Kochman (1996)

Publicacions Matemàtiques

In this paper we study higher torsion in the symplectic cobordism ring. We use Toda brackets and manifolds with singularities to construct elements of higher torsion and use the Adams spectral sequence to determine an upper bound for the order of these elements.

Cobordisms of fold maps of 2k+2-manifolds into 3 k + 2

Tamás Terpai (2008)

Banach Center Publications

We calculate the group of cobordisms of k-codimensional maps into Euclidean space with no singularities more complicated than fold for a 2k+2-dimensional source manifold in both oriented and unoriented cases.

Commuting involutions whose fixed point set consists of two special components

Pedro L. Q. Pergher, Rogério de Oliveira (2008)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Let Fⁿ be a connected, smooth and closed n-dimensional manifold. We call Fⁿ a manifold with property when it has the following property: if N m is any smooth closed m-dimensional manifold with m > n and T : N m N m is a smooth involution whose fixed point set is Fⁿ, then m = 2n. Examples of manifolds with this property are: the real, complex and quaternionic even-dimensional projective spaces R P 2 n , C P 2 n and H P 2 n , and the connected sum of R P 2 n and any number of copies of Sⁿ × Sⁿ, where Sⁿ is the n-sphere and n is not...

Elliptic cohomologies: an introductory survey.

Guillermo Moreno (1992)

Publicacions Matemàtiques

Let α and β be any angles then the known formula sin (α+β) = sinα cosβ + cosα sinβ becomes under the substitution x = sinα, y = sinβ, sin (α + β) = x √(1 - y2) + y √(1 - x2) =: F(x,y). This addition formula is an example of "Formal group law", which show up in many contexts in Modern Mathematics.In algebraic topology suitable cohomology theories induce a Formal group Law, the elliptic cohomologies are the ones who realize the Euler addition formula (1778): F(x,y) =: (x √R(y) + y √R(x)/1 - εx2y2)....
