1. The bordism groups. This note presents an outline of the authors' efforts to apply Thorn's cobordism theory [ó] to the study of differentiable periodic maps. First, however, we shall outline our scheme for computing the oriented bordism groups of a space [ l ] . These preliminary remarks bear on a problem raised by Milnor [4]. A finite manifold is the finite disjoint union of compact connected manifolds with boundary each of which carries a O-differential structure. The boundary of a finite…

Part One. By considering the cyclic subgroup generated by a given element, we may restrict our attention to cyclic group actions. By a Zd manifold (g, M) we will mean a smooth, oriented, compact…

THIS paper is a continuation of our earlier “Actions of Compact Lie Groups on Aspherical Manifolds” [3]. Our emphasis here is shifted away from aspherical manifolds. We find that a satisfactory…

### The fixed-point construction in equivariant bordism

- Mathematics

Consider the bordism fl (G) of smooth G-actions. If AT is a subgroup of G, with normalizer NK, there is a standard NK/ Af-action on £2 (ÍQ(A11, Proper). If M has a smooth G-action, a tubular…

It is no accident that Peter Landweber’s career closely matches the striking unification of algebra and topology provided by the theory of bordism of manifolds, especially complex bordism: his work…

### Equivariant almost complex structures on quasi-toric manifolds

- Mathematics

Let M be an oriented closed compact manifold. Then M is said to be quasi-toric over a simple polytope P n ([1], [2]) if: 1) there is a locally standard action of the torus T n on M; 2) there exists a…
