On the bordism group for group actions on the torus
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Online first, 21 p.

In this short note, we study the bordism problem for group actions on the torus and give examples of groups acting on the torus by diffeomorphisms isotopic to the identity that cannot be extended to an action on a bounding 3-manifold. This solves a question raised in the previous work of the authors.

Dans cette courte note, nous étudions le groupe de bordisme pour l’action d’un groupe sur le tore et nous donnons quelques exemples de groupes agissant sur le tore T par difféomorphismes isotopiques à l’identité et n’admettant pas de prolongement à une action sur une variété de dimension 3 avec bord T. Cela répond à une question posée dans les travaux antérieurs des auteurs.
