Publication# Conjugation spaces are cohomologically pure

Abstract

Conjugation spaces are equipped with an involution such that the fixed points have the same mod 2 cohomology (as a graded vector space, a ring, and even an unstable algebra) but with all degrees divided by 2, generalizing the classical examples of complex projective spaces under complex conjugation. Using tools from stable equivariant homotopy theory, we provide a characterization of conjugation spaces in terms of purity. This conceptual viewpoint, compared to the more computational original definition, allows us to recover all known structural properties of conjugation spaces.

Steenrod algebra

In algebraic topology, a Steenrod algebra was defined by to be the algebra of stable cohomology operations for mod cohomology. For a given prime number , the Steenrod algebra is the graded Hopf algebra over the field of order , consisting of all stable cohomology operations for mod cohomology. It is generated by the Steenrod squares introduced by for , and by the Steenrod reduced th powers introduced in and the Bockstein homomorphism for . The term "Steenrod algebra" is also sometimes used for the algebra of cohomology operations of a generalized cohomology theory.

Complex projective space

In mathematics, complex projective space is the projective space with respect to the field of complex numbers. By analogy, whereas the points of a real projective space label the lines through the origin of a real Euclidean space, the points of a complex projective space label the complex lines through the origin of a complex Euclidean space (see below for an intuitive account). Formally, a complex projective space is the space of complex lines through the origin of an (n+1)-dimensional complex vector space.

Cohomology

In mathematics, specifically in homology theory and algebraic topology, cohomology is a general term for a sequence of abelian groups, usually one associated with a topological space, often defined from a cochain complex. Cohomology can be viewed as a method of assigning richer algebraic invariants to a space than homology. Some versions of cohomology arise by dualizing the construction of homology. In other words, cochains are functions on the group of chains in homology theory.

We construct a modular desingularisation of (M) over bar (2,n)(P-r, d)(main). The geometry of Gorenstein singularities of genus two leads us to consider maps from prestable admissible covers; with this enhanced logarithmic structure, it is possible to desi ...

We develop a very general version of the hyperbola method which extends the known method by Blomer and Brudern for products of projective spaces to complete smooth split toric varieties. We use it to count Campana points of bounded log-anticanonical height ...

This paper is devoted to the study of multigraded algebras and multigraded linear series. For an Ns$\mathbb {N}s$-graded algebra A$A$, we define and study its volume function FA:N+s -> R$F_A:\mathbb {N}_+s\rightarrow \mathbb {R}$, which computes the ...
