Homotopy localization functorL f with respect to mapsf having a wedge of spheres as homotopy cofibre

  • Paul-Eugène Parent


In the connected case, we compute explicity thef-localization (in the sense of [3]) for the class of mapsZ (n)↪Z in which the cofibre is a wedge of spheres. We have an analogous result over the rationals where the cofibre is arbitrary.
