Complex Cobordism and Stable Homotopy Groups of Spheres by Douglas C. Ravenel

By Douglas C. Ravenel

Because the e-book of its first variation, this e-book has served as one of many few to be had at the classical Adams spectral series, and is the easiest account at the Adams-Novikov spectral series. This re-creation has been up to date in lots of locations, specifically the ultimate bankruptcy, which has been thoroughly rewritten with an eye fixed towards destiny study within the box. It is still the definitive reference at the reliable homotopy teams of spheres. the 1st 3 chapters introduce the homotopy teams of spheres and take the reader from the classical ends up in the sphere notwithstanding the computational features of the classical Adams spectral series and its differences, that are the most instruments topologists need to examine the homotopy teams of spheres. these days, the most productive instruments are the Brown-Peterson conception, the Adams-Novikov spectral series, and the chromatic spectral series, a tool for reading the worldwide constitution of the good homotopy teams of spheres and concerning them to the cohomology of the Morava stabilizer teams. those issues are defined intimately in Chapters four to six. The remodeled bankruptcy 7 is the computational payoff of the e-book, yielding loads of information regarding the good homotopy team of spheres. Appendices stick to, giving self-contained money owed of the speculation of formal team legislation and the homological algebra linked to Hopf algebras and Hopf algebroids. The ebook is meant for an individual wishing to review computational sturdy homotopy concept. it truly is available to graduate scholars with an information of algebraic topology and prompt to a person wishing to enterprise into the frontiers of the topic.

Example text

7). We will explain how the Adams vector field theorem, the Kervaire invariant problem, and the Segal conjecture are related to the unstable homotopy groups of spheres. 3. We are including this survey here because no comparable exposition exists in the literature and we believe these results should be understood by more than a handful of experts. In particular, this section could serve as an introduction to Mahowald [4]. The EHP sequences are the LESS of homotopy groups associated with certain fibration constructed by James [ l ] and Toda [ 5 ] .

Similarly, the generator of E? We leave it to the reader to determine the remaining groups shown in the chart, assuming the differentials are as shown. We now turn to the problem of computing differentials and group extensions in the EHPSS. For the moment we will concentrate on the prime 2. 10 I - I - 1 n"s" QRP"-’ nn+lSn+l QRP" , fl"+lSZ"+l QS", where both rows are fibre sequences and the right-hand vertical map is the standard inclusion. 7. We call it the stable EHPSS. ,,the classifying space for the symmetric 34 1.

However, one can have homogeneous infinite sums in M U * ( C P m )since the coefficient ring is negatively graded. Now CP" is the classifying space for complex line bundles and there is a map y : CP" x C P m + CP" corresponding to the tensor product; in fact, CP" is known to be a topological abelian group. 3 Proposition. ). A similar statement is true of ordinary cohomology and the FGL one gets is the additive one; this is a restatement of the fact that the first Chern class of a tensor product of complex line bundles is the sum of the first Chern classes of the factors.
