Title: Floyd’s manifold is a conjugation space.
This is joint work with Wolfgang Pitsch. We illustrate how equivariant stable homotopy methods can help us recognize the structure of a conjugation space, as introduced by Hausmann, Holm, and Puppe. We first explain their definition and present a characterization in terms of purity (obtained in previous joint work with Nicolas Ricka). We then perform equivariantly Floyd’s construction from the 1970’s of a pair of 5- and 10-dimensional manifolds with four cells, relying on Lück and Uribe’s work on equivariant bundles. The 10-dimensional one is a conjugation space.
