Nielsen Type Numbers of Self-Maps on the Real Projective Plane


Employing the induced endomorphism of the fundamental group and using the homotopy classification of self-maps of real projective plane , we compute completely two Nielsen type numbers, (f) and (f), which estimate the number of periodic points of f and the number of fixed points of the iterates of map f.
