N2 - Let G be a finite group. Let f: X → Y be a k-connected, degree 1, G-framed map of simply connected, closed, oriented, smooth manifolds X and Y of dimension 2k ≧ 6. Assuming that the dimension of the singular set of the action of G on X is at most k, we construct an abelian group W(G, Y) and an element σ(f) ∈ W (G, Y), called the surgery obstruction of f, such that the vanishing of σ(f) in W (G, Y) guarantees that f can converted by G-surgery to a homotopy equivalence.
