A Toda bracket in the stable homotopy groups of spheres

Xiugui Liu

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 9 (2009) 221–236
Abstract

Let p be a prime number greater than five. In the p–local stable homotopy groups of spheres, H Toda and J Lin, respectively, constructed the elements

γs π2sp32p22p2s+1(S), ωm,n π2pn+12pn+2pm+12pm+2p6(S)

of order p. In this paper, we show the nontriviality of the Toda bracket γs,p,ωm,n in the stable homotopy groups of spheres, where n m + 2 > 6, 3 s < p.
