Equivariant cohomology, syzygies and orbit structure Franz, Matthias Let X be a ``nice'' space with an action of a torus T. We consider the Atiyah-Bredon sequence of equivariant cohomology modules arising from the filtration of X by orbit dimension. We show that a front piece of this sequence is exact if and only if the H*(BT)-module H<sub>T</sub>*(X) is a certain syzygy. Moreover, we express the cohomology of that sequence as an Ext module involving a suitably defined equivariant homology of X.<br />One consequence is that the GKM method for computing equivariant cohomology applies to a Poincaré duality space if and only if the equivariant Poincaré pairing is perfect.
