Free actions on products of spheres at high dimensions

Osman Berat Okutan and Ergün Yalçın

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 2087–2099
Abstract

A classical conjecture in transformation group theory states that if G = (p)r acts freely on a product of k spheres Sn1 × × Snk, then r k. We prove this conjecture in the case where the dimensions {ni} are high compared to all the differences |ni nj| between the dimensions.
