"A Finite Free (Z/2Z)^r-Complex
and its Homology"
Abstract: In this talk, we consider the conjecture which states that if G=(Z/pZ)^r and X is a finite free G-CW-complex, then the rank of H_*(X , Z/pZ) over Z/pZ is at least 2^r. We formulate the algebraic version of the conjecture for p=2 and prove its equivalence with a conjecture concerning differential graded modules over polynomial rings.
