Let G be a finite group and X be a finite G-connected G-CW complex. The main purpose of this dissertation is to find means for computing the equivariant J-groups, JOG(X), and then to obtain solutions for the equivariant cross section problem of Stiefel manifolds. We give an alternative method for computing JOG(X). We do our computations for the cases: X is a free G-space, X is a trivial G-space, and X is a one point set. We find the orders of elements of JOG(FPk) for various projective spaces, and then we use the results to obtain a partial solution for the equivariant cross section problem of Stiefel manifolds. Without using Atiyah-Segal completion theorem, we prove two methods for computing JO(X). Then we show how to use these methods to find the orders of elements of JO(X), and also to find JO(X). Our illustrative example is CPk, the complex projective space.

Equivariant vector fields on three dimensional representation spheres
Gürağaç, Hami Sercan; Önder, Mustafa Turgut; Department of Mathematics (2011)
Let G be a finite group and V be an orthogonal four-dimensional real representation space of G where the action of G is non-free. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a G-equivariant vector field on the representation sphere of V in the cases G is the dihedral group, the generalized quaternion group and the semidihedral group in terms of decomposition of V into irreducible representations. In the case G is abelian, where the solution is already known, we give a more elementary so...
Centralizers of Finite p-Subgroups in Simple Locally Finite Groups
Kuzucuoğlu, Mahmut (Siberian Federal University, 2017-01-01)
We are interested in the following questions of B. Hartley: (1) Is it true that, in an infinite, simple locally finite group, if the centralizer of a finite subgroup is linear, then G is linear? (2) For a finite subgroup F of a non-linear simple locally finite group is the order vertical bar CG(F)vertical bar infinite? We prove the following: Let G be a non-linear simple locally finite group which has a Kegel sequence K = {(G(i), 1) : i is an element of N} consisting of finite simple subgroups. Let p be a f...
Implications of the index of a fixed point subgroup
Turkan, Erkan Murat (European Mathematical Society Publishing House, 2019-01-01)
Let G be a finite group and A <= Aut(G). The index vertical bar G:C-G(A)vertical bar is called the index of A in G and is denoted by Ind(G)(A). In this paper, we study the influence of Ind(G)(A) on the structure of G and prove that [G, A] is solvable in case where A is cyclic, Ind G(A) is squarefree and the orders of G and A are coprime. Moreover, for arbitrary A <= Aut(G) whose order is coprime to the order of G, we show that when [G, A] is solvable, the Fitting height of [G, A] is bounded above by the num...
Equivariant cross sections of complex Stiefel manifolds
Onder, T (Elsevier BV, 2001-01-16)
Let G be a finite group and let M be a unitary representation space of G. A solution to the existence problem of G-equivariant cross sections of the complex Stiefel manifold W-k(M) of unitary k-frames over the unit sphere S(M) is given under mild restrictions on G and on fixed point sets. In the case G is an even ordered group, some sufficient conditions for the existence of G-equivariant real frame fields on spheres with complementary G-equivariant complex structures are also obtained, improving earlier re...
Betti numbers of fixed point sets and multiplicities of indecomposable summands
Öztürk, Semra (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2003-04-01)
Let G be a finite group of even order, k be a field of characteristic 2, and M be a finitely generated kG-module. If M is realized by a compact G-Moore space X, then the Betti numbers of the fixed point set X-Cn and the multiplicities of indecomposable summands of M considered as a kC(n)-module are related via a localization theorem in equivariant cohomology, where C-n is a cyclic subgroup of G of order n. Explicit formulas are given for n = 2 and n = 4.
