An upper bound on the LS category in presence of the fundamental group

Alexander Dranishnikov

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 19 (2019) 3601–3614
Abstract

We prove that

catLSX 1 2(cd(π1(X)) + dimX)

for every CW complex X, where cd(π1(X)) denotes the cohomological dimension of the fundamental group of X. We obtain this as a corollary of the inequality

catLSX 1 2(catLS(uX) + dimX),

where uX: X Bπ1(X) is a classifying map for the universal covering of X.
