Poincaré duality and periodicity

John R Klein and William Richter

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 11 (2011) 1961–1985
Abstract

We construct periodic families of Poincaré complexes, partially solving a question of Hodgson, and infinite families of Poincaré complexes whose top cell falls off after one suspension but which fail to embed in a sphere of codimension one. We give a homotopy theoretic description of the four-fold periodicity in knot cobordism.
