A classification of cohomology transfers for ramified covering maps

Marcelo A. Aguilar, Carlos Prieto (2006)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

We construct a cohomology transfer for n-fold ramified covering maps. Then we define a very general concept of transfer for ramified covering maps and prove a classification theorem for such transfers. This generalizes Roush's classification of transfers for n-fold ordinary covering maps. We characterize those representable cofunctors which admit a family of transfers for ramified covering maps that have two naturality properties, as well as normalization and stability. This is analogous to Roush's...

A conjecture on the unstable Adams spectral sequences for SO and U

Kathryn Lesh (2002)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

We give a systematic account of a conjecture suggested by Mark Mahowald on the unstable Adams spectral sequences for the groups SO and U. The conjecture is related to a conjecture of Bousfield on a splitting of the E₂-term and to an algebraic spectral sequence constructed by Bousfield and Davis. We construct and realize topologically a chain complex which is conjectured to contain in its differential the structure of the unstable Adams spectral sequence for SO. A filtration of this chain complex...

A construction of noncontractible simply connected cell-like two-dimensional Peano continua

Katsuya Eda, Umed H. Karimov, Dušan Repovš (2007)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Using the topologist sine curve we present a new functorial construction of cone-like spaces, starting in the category of all path-connected topological spaces with a base point and continuous maps, and ending in the subcategory of all simply connected spaces. If one starts from a noncontractible n-dimensional Peano continuum for any n > 0, then our construction yields a simply connected noncontractible (n + 1)-dimensional cell-like Peano continuum. In particular, starting from the circle 𝕊¹,...

A new invariant and parametric connected sum of embeddings

A. Skopenkov (2007)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

We define an isotopy invariant of embeddings N m of manifolds into Euclidean space. This invariant together with the α-invariant of Haefliger-Wu is complete in the dimension range where the α-invariant could be incomplete. We also define parametric connected sum of certain embeddings (analogous to surgery). This allows us to obtain new completeness results for the α-invariant and the following estimation of isotopy classes of embeddings. In the piecewise-linear category, for a (3n-2m+2)-connected...

A note on generalized equivariant homotopy groups

Marek Golasiński, Daciberg L. Gonçalves, Peter N. Wong (2009)

Banach Center Publications

In this paper, we generalize the equivariant homotopy groups or equivalently the Rhodes groups. We establish a short exact sequence relating the generalized Rhodes groups and the generalized Fox homotopy groups and we introduce Γ-Rhodes groups, where Γ admits a certain co-grouplike structure. Evaluation subgroups of Γ-Rhodes groups are discussed.
