    I have added now also the equivariant version of the Hopf degree theorem, the way tom Dieck gives it (here). It’s somewhat baroque in its list of assumption clauses. I tried to streamline for readability, but there is a limit to what one can do about it…

    I’d like to remove the assumption that dim(X H)1dim(X^H) \geq 1, which tom Dieck makes “for simplicity” on p. 212, because then his equivariant Hopf degree theorem would at least apply to compute π V(S V)\pi_V(S^V) for non-trivial irreps VV.

    Looking through his proof p. 213-214 it seems this should be readily accounted for simply by making the case distinction that for H=GH = G we start the list of degrees with a “degree” in /2\mathbb{Z}/2 instead of in \mathbb{Z}, everything else remaining the same. (?)

    I have added (here) what I suppose is the resulting statement for the bipointed part of π V(S V)\pi^V(S^V):

    π V(S V) {0,}/ HIsotr S V(G)HG|W G(H)| [S VcS V] (Hdeg(c H)offs(c,H)) \array{ \pi^V\left( S^V\right)^{\{0,\infty\}/} & \overset{\simeq}{\longrightarrow} & \underset{ { { {H \in \mathrm{Isotr}_{S^V}(G)} \atop {H \neq G} } } }{\prod} \;\; {\vert W_G(H)\vert } \cdot \mathbb{Z} \\ \big[ S^V \overset{c}{\longrightarrow} S^V \big] &\mapsto& \Big( H \mapsto \mathrm{deg} \big( c^H \big) - \mathrm{offs}(c,H) \Big) }

    but check

    In the statement of the theorem, should it really say X→X^n as opposed to X→S^n?

    have generalized the statement for π V(S V)\pi^V(S^V) from the bi-pointed case to the ordinary pointed case (here), which is what we really want to see, but now has this clunky case distinction in it (which is why tom Dieck’s book ignores this case):

    π V(S V) {}/ { 2 | V G=0 | otherwise}×HIsotr S V(G)HG|W G(H)| [S VcS V] (Hdeg(c H)offs(c,H)) \array{ \pi^V\left( S^V\right)^{\{\infty\}/} & \overset{\simeq}{\longrightarrow} & \left\{ \array{ \mathbb{Z}_2 &\vert& V^G = 0 \\ \mathbb{Z} &\vert& \text{otherwise} } \right\} \times \underset{ { { {H \in \mathrm{Isotr}_{S^V}(G)} \atop {H \neq G} } } }{\prod} \;\; {\vert W_G(H)\vert } \cdot \mathbb{Z} \\ \big[ S^V \overset{c}{\longrightarrow} S^V \big] &\mapsto& \Big( H \mapsto \mathrm{deg} \big( c^H \big) - \mathrm{offs}(c,H) \Big) }

    changed the assumption statement

    Y HY^H is dim(X H)dim(X^H)-connected

    (which is how tom Dieck states it here)


    Y HY^H is (dim(X H)1)(dim(X^H)-1)-connected

    (hence connected if dim(X H)=1dim\left(X^H\right) = 1, simply connected if dim(X H)=2dim\left(X^H\right) = 2, etc.);

    (which is what must be meant)

    I have given the list of assumptions that enter tom Dieck’s equivariant Hopf degree theorem a Definition-environment, in order to be able to better refer to it, now this Def. (“matching pair of GG-spaces”, for lack of a better term)

    spelled out two examples (here and here) for pairs of GG-spaces XX and YY to which tom Dieck’s equivariant Hopf degree theorem applies (“matching pairs of GG-spaces”):

    1. for any GG-linear representation

      S VS VS^V \longrightarrow S^V

      (representation sphere mapping to itself)

    2. for GG the point group of a crystallographic group acting on a Euclidean space EE:

      E/NS EE/N \longrightarrow S^E

      (torus quotient by the given lattice with its induced GG-action mapping to the representation sphere).

    and added pointer to that textbook also at degree of a continuous function and Poincaré–Hopf theorem, and maybe elsewhere, too
