nLab norm map




In representation theory a norm map is a canonical morphism from coinvariants to invariants of a given action which, in suitably well behaved cases is given by group averaging.

(e.g Lurie, constructions,,

For ∞-actions of finite groups GG on objects EE in stable (∞,1)-categories, then the homotopy cofiber X tGX^{t G} of the norm map is called the Tate construction, sitting in a homotopy fiber sequence

X GX GX tG. X_G \longrightarrow X^G \longrightarrow X^{t G} \,.

(e.g Lurie, def.

For the stable (∞,1)-category of spectra this is accordingly called the Tate spectrum.


The general abstract construction is due to
