Fibrewise rational H-spaces

Gregory Lupton and Samuel Bruce Smith

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 12 (2012) 1667–1694

DOI: 10.2140/agt.2012.12.1667

Abstract

We prove fibrewise versions of classical theorems of Hopf and Leray–Samelson. Our results imply the fibrewise H-triviality after rationalization of a certain class of fibrewise H-spaces. They apply, in particular, to universal adjoint bundles. From this, we may retrieve a result of Crabb and Sutherland [Proc. London Math. Soc. 81 (2000) 747–768], which is used there as a crucial step in establishing their main finiteness result.

Keywords
