Homology decompositions of the loops on 1–stunted Borel constructions of $C_2$–actions
The Carlsson construction is a simplicial group whose geometric realization is the loop space of the 1–stunted reduced Borel construction. Our main results are: (i) given a pointed simplicial set acted upon by the discrete cyclic group of order 2, if the orbit projection has a section, then the loop space on the geometric realization of the Carlsson construction has a mod 2 homology decomposition; (ii) in addition, if the reduced diagonal map of the –invariant set is homologous to zero, then the pinched sets in the above homology decomposition themselves have homology decompositions in terms of the –invariant set and the orbit space. Result (i) generalizes a previous homology decomposition of the second author for trivial actions. To illustrate these two results, we compute the mod 2 Betti numbers of an example.
