Dimension functions for spherical fibrations

Cihan Okay and Ergün Yalçin

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 3907–3941
Abstract

Given a spherical fibration ξ over the classifying space BG of a finite group G we define a dimension function for the m–fold fiber join of ξ, where m is some large positive integer. We show that the dimension functions satisfy the Borel–Smith conditions when m is large enough. As an application we prove that there exists no spherical fibration over the classifying space of Qd(p) = (p)2 SL2(p) with p–effective Euler class, generalizing a result of Ünlü (2004) about group actions on finite complexes homotopy equivalent to a sphere. We have been informed that this result will also appear in upcoming work of Alejandro Adem and Jesper Grodal as a corollary of a previously announced program on homotopy group actions due to Grodal.
