Essential Maps Exist From BU to coker J
We show that [BU, coker J] :$ 0 but that there are no infinite loop maps from BU to coker J. The proofs involve the Segal conjecture. It is known that [coker J, BU] = 0 [HS]. A conjecture dating from
Adams Memorial Symposium on Algebraic Topology: Progress report on the telescope conjecture
The Telescope Conjecture (made public in a lecture at Northwestern University in 1977) says that the vn–periodic homotopy of a finite complex of type n has a nice algebraic description. It also gives
The localized slice spectral sequence, norms of Real bordism, and the Segal conjecture
In this paper, we introduce the localized slice spectral sequence, a variant of the equivariant slice spectral sequence that computes geometric fixed points equipped with residue group actions. We
Mahowaldean families of elements in stable homotopy groups revisited
In the mid 1970s Mark Mahowald constructed a new infinite family of elements in the 2-component of the stable homotopy groups of spheres, ηj∈πSj2 (S0)(2) [M]. Using standard Adams spectral sequence
When seeking an analogue of ordinary cohomology for spaces with a specified finite group G of symmetries we may think first of Bredon's cohomology for obstruction theory [7], and its extention to the
The completion conjecture in equivariant cohomology
Consider RO (G)-graded an cohomology theory k G. We shall not insist on a detailed definition; suffice it to say that there is a suspension isomorphism for each real representation of G. The first
The cyclotomic trace and algebraic K-theory of spaces
The cyclotomic trace is a map from algebraic K-theory of a group ring to a certain topological refinement of cyclic homology. The target is naturally mapped to topological Hochschild homology, and
The Segal conjecture for topological Hochschild homology of complex cobordism
We study the Cp‐equivariant Tate construction on the topological Hochschild homology THH(B) of a symmetric ring spectrum B by relating it to a topological version R+(B) of the Singer construction,
The smooth classification of 4-dimensional complete intersections
We prove the "Sullivan Conjecture" on the classification of 4-dimensional complete intersections up to diffeomorphism. Here an $n$-dimensional complete intersection is a smooth complex variety formed

Stable splitting of $K(G,\,1)$
the splitting of the cohomology (ordinary and generalized) of K(G, 1), for finite abelian G, is realized topologically by taking suspensions. The cohomology of K(ZF,, 1), both ordinary and

Calculation of Lin's Ext groups
The first-named author has proved interesting results about the stable homotopy and cohomotopy of spaces related to real projective space RP∞; these are presented in an accompanying paper (6). His

Let ΦSr(X) be the stable homotopy group where SnX means the n-fold suspension of X. For example, the groups ΦSr(S0) are the stable homotopy groups of spheres. Let be the ‘infinite-dimensional’
On conjectures of Mahowald, Segal and Sullivan
In this paper we prove some results about the stable homotopy and cohomotopy of spaces related to the infinite real protective space RP∞. These include M. E. Mahowald's conjecture on the limit of
