    Well, from a cursory look, there aren’t too many other references to choose. Cruikshank’s thesis has a relevant Chap. 7, perhaps the source for the entry included in cohomotopy

    • James Cruickshank, Twisted homotopy theory and the geometric equivariant 1-stem, Topology and its Applications Volume 129, Issue 3, 1 April 2003, Pages 251-271 (arXiv:10.1016/S0166-8641(02)00183-9)

    I think that’s just the stable version.

    Thanks. I have added the pointer.

    added statement of one form of what we like to call the “twisted Pontrjagin-Thom theorem”, currently it reads as follows:


    1. X nX^n be a closed manifold of dimension nn;

    2. 1k1 \leq k \in \mathbb{N} a positive natural number.

    Then the scanning map constitutes a weak homotopy equivalence

    1. the J-twisted (n+k)-Cohomotopy space of X nX^n, hence the space of sections of the (n+k)(n + k)-spherical fibration over XX which is associated via the tangent bundle by the O(n)-action on S n+k=S( n× k+1)S^{n+k} = S(\mathbb{R}^{n} \times \mathbb{R}^{k+1})

    2. the configuration space of points on X nX^n with labels in S kS^k.

    The section titled “Twisted Pontrjagin-Thom theorem” really talked about the “May-Segal theorem” (i.e. the negative codimension version which gives configuration spaces of points, here).

    I have now instead added a brief pointer to twisted Pontrjagin theorem and gave the previous material a new header “Twisted May-Segal theorem”.

    I should really create an entry May-Segal theorem (as it’s somewhat buried at configuration space of points). But not right now.
