Generalized Orbifold Euler Characteristic of Symmetric Products and
Equivariant Morava K-Theory
We introduce the notion of generalized orbifold Euler characteristic
associated to an arbitrary group, and study its properties. We then
calculate generating functions of higher order (p-primary) orbifold
Euler characteristic of symmetric products of a G-manifold M. As a
corollary, we obtain a formula for the number of conjugacy classes of
d-tuples of mutually commuting elements (of order powers of p) in the
wreath product G wreath S_n in terms of corresponding numbers of G. As
a topological application, we present generating functions of Euler
characteristic of equivariant Morava K-theories of symmetric products
of a G-manifold M.
