An Equivariant Novikov Conjecture Dedicated to

  title={An Equivariant Novikov Conjecture Dedicated to},
  author={Jonathan Rosenberg and Shmuel Weinberger},
We discuss and formulate the correct equivariant generalization of the strong Novikov conjecture. This will be the statement that certain G-equivariant higher signatures (living in suitable equivariant K-groups) are invariant under G-maps of manifolds which, nonequivariantly, are homotopy equivalences preserving orientation. We prove this conjecture for manifolds modeled on a complete Riemannian manifold of nonpositive curvature on which G (a compact Lie group) acts by isometries. We also use… CONTINUE READING
