### How is an $S^1$-equivariant elliptic cohomology theory affected as we continuously vary the underlying elliptic curve?

Grojnowski constructs a $S^1$-equivariant cohomology theory over a complex elliptic curve $E$, designed to trivially satisfy: $$E^*_{S^1}(pt) = E$$
The functor $E^*_{S^1}(-)$ takes in a space $X$ ...

### Equivariant and orbifold Chern classes

Edit. After thinking about this problem a bit longer, I am not so sure anymore that the Bredon cohomology proposed by Adem and Ruan gives me the invariants I am looking for. I have therefore moved ...

### Is there any “deep” relation between the localization theorem of equivariant cohomology and the localization theorem of equivariant K-theory

First let's consider equivariant cohomology: if a compact Lie group $G$ acts on a compact manifold $M$. We have the equivariant cohomology $ H_G(M)$ defined as the cohomology of the cochain complex $((...

### Finite generation of equivariant cohomology rings

Let $G$ be a finite group acting on a topological space $X$. (In my applications, $X$ is the classifying space of a compact Lie group.) Let $H^\ast(-)=H^\ast(-;\mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z})$ denote mod 2 ...

### Example request: equivariant formality versus formality for homogeneous spaces

Recall that a continuous action of a compact Lie group $T$ on a space $X$ is said to be equivariantly formal if the Borel equivariant cohomology $H^*(X \times_T ET;\mathbb Q)$ surjects through ...
