Idea
The generalization of the stable homotopy category from stable homotopy theory to equivariant stable homotopy theory .

Definition
A homomorphism $f \colon E_1 \longrightarrow E_2$ between two G-spectra , indexed on a G-universe $\mathcal{U}$ , is called an equivariant weak homotopy equivalence if the following equivalent conditions hold

For each $V\in \mathcal{U}$ the component map $f_V \colon f$ induces ordinary weak homotopy equivalences $(E_1)_V^H \to (E_2)_V^H$ on all fixed point spaces for all closed subgroups $H \hookrightarrow G$ .

For each $n \in \mathbb{Z}$ and each closed subgroup $H \hookrightarrow G$ the morphism $f$ induces an isomorphism of Mackey functors of equivariant homotopy groups $\pi_n^H(E_1) \stackrel{\simeq}{\longrightarrow} \pi_n^H(E_2)$ .

(The equivalence of these conditions is part of the equivariant Whitehead theorem .)

The $G$ -equivariant stable homotopy category is the homotopy category of G-spectra with respect to these weak equivalences.

Properties
Relation to Mackey functors
The full subcategory $\mathcal{B}_G$ of the equivariant stable homotopy category on the objects of the form

$G/H_* \wedge \Sigma^\infty S^n$

is, as an additive category , the domain of Mackey functors , such as the equivariant homotopy group -functors.
