Hello,
here is a question for the toplogy list. You all know that the n th stable
homotopy group of spheres is framed bordism of framed n-manifolds. Now I
consider a closed n- manifold M and a framing a of M. Let f:N \to M be a
finite covering. This induces a framing f^*a of N. Here is the question:
Is there any general statement which relates the elements [M,a] and
[N,f^*a] in the stable homotopy group?
Best,
Johannes
