Abstract

A lower estimate is proved for the number of critical orbits and critical values of a G-invariant C¹ function $f:S^n → ℝ$, where G is a finite nontrivial group acting freely and orthogonally on $ℝ^{n+1} \ {0}$. Neither Morse theory nor the minimax method is applied. The proofs are based on a general version of Borsuk's Antipodal Theorem for equivariant maps of joins of G-sets.
