Nielsen coincidence theory of fibre-preserving maps and Dold's fixed point index
Let $M \to B$, $N \to B$ be fibrations and $f_1,f_2\colon M \to N$ be a pair of fibre-preserving maps. Using normal bordism techniques we define an invariant which is an obstruction to deforming the pair $f_1,f_2$ over $B$ to a coincidence free pair of maps. In the special case where the two fibrations are the same and one of the maps is the identity, a weak version of our $\omega$-invariant turns out to equal Dold's fixed point index of fibre-preserving maps. The concepts of Reidemeister classes and Nielsen coincidence classes over $B$ are developed. As an illustration we compute e.g. the minimal number of coincidence components for all homotopy classes of maps between $S^1$-bundles over $S^1$ as well as their Nielsen and Reidemeister numbers.
