Rational topological complexity

Barry Jessup, Aniceto Murillo and Paul-Eugène Parent

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 12 (2012) 1789–1801
Abstract

We give a new upper bound for Farber’s topological complexity for rational spaces in terms of Sullivan models. We use it to determine the topological complexity in some new cases, and to prove a Ganea-type formula in these and other cases.
