Polynomial Functors and Homotopy Theory

Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 311)


We develop methods for proving that certain extensions of polynomial functors do not split naturally. As an application we give a functorial description of the third and the fourth stable homotopy groups of the classifying spaces of free abelian groups.
