The primary source is the seminal 1963 differential-topology article, "Groups of homotopy spheres," by Michel Kervaire and John Milnor.

Professor Khan will outline Section 7 of the paper.  The goals are to show that P4k is infinite cyclic, detected by signature, and that its image bP4k in Θ4k-1 is finite.  These conclusions depend on deep work of R Bott (Lie groups) and of J F Adams (homotopy theory).

(For continuity, here's a link to the previous talk.)
