Abstract/Media

The Segal conjecture identifies maps from the classifying space of a finite group to the plus construction on the classifying space of the infinite symmetric group with the completed Burnside ring. I'll give an uncompleted version of this result where we instead consider maps to the plus construction on the classifying space of the finite symmetric groups. I'll also explore further results in this direction, that may trace an outline of a homotopical representation theory.
