Caractérisation des opérations d’algèbres sur les modules différentiels. (Characterization of actions of algebras on differential modules). (French) Zbl 0652.55012
Let \(\Lambda\) be an associative algebra with unity and \(M_*\) a \(\Lambda\)-differential graded module. To \(M_*\) we associate a class \[ \theta (M_*)\in Ext_{\Lambda}^{2.-1}(H_*(M_*),\quad H_*(M_*)) \] which characterizes the “2-quasi isomorphism class” of \(M_*\). This construction, applied to the singular complex of a G-space X, where G is a discrete group, gives a class \(\theta\) (X) which determines the second differential of the spectral sequence of the equivariant homology of X. In the special case of the \({\mathbb{N}}\)-structure determined by X equipped with an endomorphism f such that \(H_*(f)=1\), the class \(\theta\) (f) is in \(Ext^{1.-1}(H_*(X),H_*(X))\) and defines an obstruction for f to be an nth power. An action of \({\mathbb{Z}}_ p\) on a surface X yields \(\theta\) (X)\(\in H^ 2({\mathbb{Z}}_ p,Hom(H_ 1(X),H_ 2(X)))\) which classifies the action up to quasi-isomorphism.
