Homotopy Theory of Orbispaces

  title={Homotopy Theory of Orbispaces},
  author={Andr{\'e} Henriques and David Gepner},
  journal={arXiv: Algebraic Topology},
Given a topological group G, its orbit category Orb_G has the transitive G-spaces G/H as objects and the G-equivariant maps between them as morphisms. A well known theorem of Elmendorf then states that the category of G-spaces and the category of contravariant functors Func(Orb_G,Spaces) have equivalent homotopy theories. We extend this result to the context of orbispaces, with the role of Orb_G now played by a category whose objects are topological groups and whose morphisms are given by Hom(H…

Constructing and manipulating homotopy types from categorical input data has been an important theme in algebraic topology for decades. Every category gives rise to a `classifying space', the

Orbifold bordism and duality for finite orbispectra

We construct the stable (representable) homotopy category of finite orbispectra, whose objects are formal desuspensions of finite orbi-CW-pairs by vector bundles and whose morphisms are stable

A Comparison of two Models of Orbispaces

This paper proves that the two homotopy theories for orbispaces given by Gepner and Henriques and by Schwede, respectively, agree by providing a zig-zag of Dwyer-Kan equivalences between the

Representations up to homotopy and cohomology of classifying spaces

The classifying space BG of a Lie group G can be thought of as the homotopy quotient of the least free action imaginable, the action of $G$ on a point. The cohomology of BG is related in a very

Orbifolds, Orbispaces and Global Homotopy Theory

Given an orbifold, we construct an orthogonal spectrum representing its stable global homotopy type. Orthogonal spectra now represent orbifold cohomology theories which automatically satisfy certain

This paper identifies the homotopy theories of topological stacks and orbispaces with unstable global homotopy theory. At the same time, we provide a new perspective by interpreting it as the

Orbispaces as differentiable stratified spaces

The goal of these notes is to give a complementary exposition to those available and to clarify some subtle points where the literature can sometimes be confusing, even in the classical case of proper Lie group actions.

Cobordisms of global quotient orbifolds and an equivariant Pontrjagin-Thom construction

We introduce an equivariant Pontrjagin-Thom construction which identifies equivariant cohomotopy classes with certain fixed point bordism classes. This provides a concrete geometric model for

Generalized twisted sectors of orbifolds

For a finitely generated discrete group Γ, the Γ-sectors of an orbifold Q are a disjoint union of orbifolds corresponding to homomorphisms from Γ into a groupoid presenting Q. Here, we show that the



Systems of fixed point sets

Let G be a compact Lie group. A canonical method is given for constructing a C-space from homotopy theoretic information about its fixed point sets. The construction is a special case of the

The Spectrum of an Equivariant Cohomology Ring: II

Let G be a compact Lie group (e.g., a finite group) and let HG= H*(BG, Z/pZ) be its mod p cohomology ring. One knows this ring is finitely generated, hence upon dividing out by the ideal of nilpotent

Twisted K-theory

Twisted complex K-theory can be defined for a space X equipped with a bundle of complex projective spaces, or, equivalently, with a bundle of C ∗ -algebras. Up to equivalence, the twisting

Foundations of Topological Stacks I

This is the first in a series of papers devoted to foundations of topological stacks. We begin developing a homotopy theory for topological stacks along the lines of classical homotopy theory of

Equivariant K-theory

Topological K-theory [2] has many variants which have been developed and exploited for geometric purposes. There are real or quaternionic versions, “Real” K-theory in the sense of [1], equivariant

Sheaves in geometry and logic: a first introduction to topos theory

This text presents topos theory as it has developed from the study of sheaves. Sheaves arose in geometry as coefficients for cohomology and as descriptions of the functions appropriate to various

Metric Spaces of Non-Positive Curvature

This book describes the global properties of simply-connected spaces that are non-positively curved in the sense of A. D. Alexandrov, and the structure of groups which act on such spaces by

We discuss the topological sigma model on an orbifold target space. We describe the moduli space of classical minima for computing correlation functions involving twisted operators, and show, through
