Homotopy equivalence of posets with a group action

J Thévenaz, P.J Webb
1991 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series A  
Then 4 is a G-homotopy equivalence. Here a G-poset means a partially ordered set together with an orderpreserving action of G, and G, denotes the stabilizer of y. Moreover we define %Q= {ZEY I ZGY} y>  ...  These results deal with combinatorial topology, in particular with complexes associated with posets of subgroups of a finite group.  ...

Equivariant homotopy of posets and some applications to subgroup lattices

Volkmar Welker
1995 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series A  
In this paper we consider the action of a finite group G on the geometric realization ]CP[ of the order complex CP of a poset P, on which a group G acts as a group of poset automorphisms.  ...  Moreover, we provide conditions which imply that the orbit space I CPI/G is homotopy equivalent to the geometric realization of the order complex over the orbit poset P/G.  ...  If a group G acts on the poset P as a group of poset automorphisms (i.e., x <_ y ~ x g < yg A(V)°/V) are homotopy equivalent.  ...

G-functors, G-posets and homotopy decompositions of G-spaces

Stefan Jackowski, Jolanta Słomińska
2001 Fundamenta Mathematicae  
For a group G acting on a poset W and an isotropy presheaf d : |W| is a homotopy equivalence.  ...  We describe a unifying approach to a variety of homotopy decompositions of classifying spaces, mainly of finite groups.  ...  For any object G/K ∈ O (p) (G) the category I/(G/K) is equivalent to the category of K-orbits O (p) (K) and the functor on I/(G/K) we are interested in corresponds to the functor H * (EG × K −).  ...

Elmendorf constructions for G-categories and G-posets [article]

Jonathan Rubin
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce new Elmendorf constructions for equivariant categories and posets, and we prove that they are compatible with the classical topological one.  ...  Our constructions are more concrete than their model-categorical counterparts, and they give rise to new proofs of the Elmendorf theorems for equivariant categories and posets.  ...  Here, a weak equivalence of categories or posets is a functor F : D → E such that BF is a homotopy equivalence of spaces, a weak equivalence of presheaves is a natural transformation λ : X ⇒ Y such that  ...

Homotopy colimits - comparison lemmas for combinatorial applications

Volkmar Welker, Gnter M. Ziegler, Rade T. Zivaljevic
1999 Journal für die Reine und Angewandte Mathematik  
We provide a "toolkit" of basic lemmas for the comparison of homotopy types of homotopy colimits of diagrams of spaces over small categories.  ...  We show how this toolkit can be used in quite different fields of applications. We demonstrate this with respect to 1.  ...  The referee's remarks, corrections and additions (see in particular Section 3.3) were extremely helpful, and led to a substantial improvement of the paper and its exposition.  ...

Spherical posets from commuting elements

Cihan Okay
2018 Journal of group theroy  
We prove that the universal cover of its nerve is homotopy equivalent to a wedge of r-spheres where {2r\geq 4} is the rank of its Frattini quotient.  ...  In this paper, we study the homotopy type of the partially ordered set of left cosets of abelian subgroups in an extraspecial p-group.  ...  Spherical posets also play a role in homological stability results. In [12] Vogtmann showed a stability result for the orthogonal group by considering the action on the poset of singular subspaces.  ...

Homology representations of unitary reflection groups [article]

Justin Koonin
2013 arXiv   pre-print
This paper continues the study of the poset of eigenspaces of elements of a unitary reflection group (for a fixed eigenvalue), which was commenced in [6] and [5].  ...  The emphasis in this paper is on the representation theory of unitary reflection groups. The main tool is the theory of poset extensions due to Segev and Webb ([16]).  ...  (iv) If P and Q are G-posets and φ : P → Q is a homotopy equivalence of posets and also a G-poset map, then φ is said to be a G-homotopy equivalence.  ...

Propagating sharp group homology decompositions

Jesper Grodal, Stephen D. Smith
2006 Advances in Mathematics  
A collection C of subgroups of a finite group G can give rise to three different standard formulas for the cohomology of G in terms of either: the subgroups in C; or their centralizers; or their normalizers  ...  To do this, we exhibit some sufficient conditions on the poset C which imply comparison results.  ...  If X is a G-subposet of a G-poset X and F is G-equivariant, then the retraction will be a G-homotopy deformation retraction, and |X | is G-homotopy equivalent to |X |.  ...

On fixed point sets of distinguished collections for groups of parabolic characteristic

John Maginnis, Silvia Onofrei
2010 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series A  
We determine the nature of the fixed point sets of groups of order p, acting on complexes of distinguished p-subgroups (those p-subgroups containing p-central elements in their centers).  ...  A poset map is a G-homotopy equivalence if and only if the induced map on H -fixed points is a homotopy equivalence for all H G; see [18, 1.3] . Notation 2.1.  ...  Since Δ 5 A is homotopy equivalent to a building, Δ Q will be contractible for any 5-group Q of order at least 25 which contains an element of type 5 A.  ...

Homotopy properties of the poset of nontrivial p-subgroups of a group

If Z, is contractible for each x in X, then p,: Z -+ X is a homotopy equivalence. The poset x\p, consists of all (x', y) in Z with x' 3 x.  ...  The homotopy property can be used to show a map f: X + Y is a homotopy equivalence (i.e., 1 f 1 is a homotopy equivalence) when there exists a map g: I' ---f -X with suitable properties (e.g., f, g are  ...  where T(Fn)A is the poset of proper A-invariant subspaces of Fn.  ...

A nice acyclic matching on the nerve of the partition lattice [article]

Ralf Donau
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The author has already proven that the space Δ(Π_n)/G is homotopy equivalent to a wedge of spheres of dimension n-3 for all natural numbers n≥ 3 and all subgroups G⊂ S_1× S_n-1.  ...  We construct an S_1× S_n-1-equivariant acyclic matching on Δ(Π_n) together with a description of its critical simplices. This is also a more elementary approach to determining the number of spheres.  ...  Furthermore the author would like to thank another anonymous reader of a previous version of this paper.  ...
