A remark about dihedral group actions on spheres
Ian Hambleton
Mathematics , 2009, DOI: 10.1112/blms/bdq080
Abstract: We show that a finite dihedral group does not act pseudofreely and locally linearly on a 2k-dimensional sphere, if k > 1. This answers a question of R. S. Kulkarni from 1982.
Some Examples of Free actions on Products of Spheres
Ian Hambleton
Mathematics , 2003,
Abstract: If $G_1$ and $G_2$ are finite groups with periodic Tate cohomology, then $G_1\times G_2$ acts freely and smoothly on some product $S^n \times S^n$.
Surgery obstructions on closed manifolds and the Inertia subgroup
Ian Hambleton
Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: The Wall surgery obstruction groups have two interesting geometrically defined subgroups, consisting of the surgery obstructions between closed manifolds, and the inertial elements. We show that the inertia group $I_{n+1}(\pi,w)$ and the closed manifold subgroup $C_{n+1}(\pi,w)$ are equal in dimensions $n+1\geq 6$, for any finitely-presented group $\pi$ and any orientation character $w\colon \pi \to \cy 2$.
Topological spherical space forms
Ian Hambleton
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: Free actions of finite groups on spheres give rise to topological spherical space forms. The existence and classification problems for space forms have a long history in the geometry and topology of manifolds. In this article, we present a survey of some of the main results and a guide to the literature.
Free Actions of Extraspecial $p$-Groups on $S^n \times S^n$
Ian Hambleton,Ozgun Unlu
Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: Let $p$ be an odd regular prime, and let $G_p$ denote the extraspecial $p$--group of order $p^{3}$ and exponent $p$. We show that $G_p$ acts freely and smoothly on $S^{2p-1} \times S^{2p-1}$. For $p=3$ we explicitly construct a free smooth action of a Lie group $\widetilde{G}_3$ containing $G_3$ on $S^{5} \times S^{5}$. In addition, we show that any finite odd order subgroup of the exceptional Lie group $\Gtwo $ admits a free smooth action on $S^{11}\times S^{11}$.
Induction and computation of Bass Nil Groups for finite groups
Ian Hambleton,Wolfgang Lueck
Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: Let G be a finite group. We show that the Bass Nil-groups $NK_n(RG)$, $n \in Z$, are generated from the p-subgroups of G by induction maps, certain twisting maps depending on elements in the centralizers of the p-subgroups, and the Verschiebung homomorphisms. As a consequence, the groups $NK_n(RG)$ are generated by induction from elementary subgroups. For $NK_0(ZG)$ we get an improved estimate of the torsion exponent.
Free Actions of Finite Groups on $S^n \times S^n$
Ian Hambleton,Ozgun Unlu
Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: Let $p$ be an odd prime. We construct a non-abelian extension $\Gamma$ of $S^1$ by $Z/p \times Z/p$, and prove that any finite subgroup of $\Gamma$ acts freely and smoothly on $S^{2p-1} \times S^{2p-1}$. In particular, for each odd prime $p$ we obtain free smooth actions of infinitely many non-metacyclic rank two $p$-groups on $S^{2p-1} \times S^{2p-1}$. These results arise from a general approach to the existence problem for finite group actions on products of equidimensional spheres.
Examples of Free Actions on Products of Spheres
Ian Hambleton,Ozgun Unlu
Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: We construct a non-abelian extension $\Gamma$ of $S^1$ by $\cy 3 \times \cy 3$, and prove that $\Gamma$ acts freely and smoothly on $S^{5} \times S^{5}$. This gives new actions on $S^{5} \times S^{5}$ for an infinite family $\cP$ of finite 3-groups. We also show that any finite odd order subgroup of the exceptional Lie group $G_2$ admits a free smooth action on $S^{11}\times S^{11}$. This gives new actions on $S^{11}\times S^{11}$ for an infinite family $\cE $ of finite groups. We explain the significance of these families $\cP $, $\cE $ for the general existence problem, and correct some mistakes in the literature.
Coarse Geometry and P. A. Smith Theory
Ian Hambleton,Lucian Savin
Mathematics , 2010,
Abstract: We define a generalization of the fixed point set, called the bounded fixed set, for a group acting by isometries on a metric space. An analogue of the P. A. Smith theorem is proved for metric spaces of finite asymptotic dimension, which relates the coarse homology of the bounded fixed set to the coarse homology of the total space.
On Certain 5-manifolds with Fundamental Group of Order 2
Ian Hambleton,Yang Su
Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: In this paper, an explicit classification result for certain 5-manifolds with fundamental group Z/2 is obtained. These manifolds include total spaces of circle bundles over simply-connected 4-manifolds.
