On the computations of the Nielsen number

Abstract

The aim of this note is to show the following

Main Theorem. Let X be a compact connected ANR, f : X X be a map. Suppose there is an integer n such that fπn(π1(X)) J(fn). Then any two fixed point classes of f have the same index. Hence

L(f) = 0 implies N(f) = 0, while
L(f)0 implies N(f) = Coker(H1(X)1−−f→∗H1(X)).
Here L(f) and N(f) are the Lefschetz number and Nielsen number of f respectively, and J(F) π1(X) stands for the Jiang subgroup of f.
