Nielsen coincidence theory of fibre-preserving maps and Dold's fixed point index

Daciberg L. Gonçalves, Ulrich Koschorke



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
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.
