Smith theory for algebraic varieties. (English) Zbl 1069.57020
The version of Smith theory due to J. P. May [Proc. Am. Math. Soc. 101, 728–730 (1987; Zbl 0635.57020)] is generalized to algebraic varieties over fields of arbitrary characteristic. The main tools are Bredon cohomology and coefficient systems.
