Adams e-invariant



The Adams e-invariant (Adams 66, section 7) is a collection of group homomorphisms from the stable homotopy groups of spheres to cyclic groups of certain order. Its kernel characterizes the coimage of the J-homomorphism.


The definition is due to section 7 of

  • John Adams, On the groups J(X)J(X) IV, Topology 5: 21,(1966) Correction, Topology 7 (3): 331 (1968) (pdf)
