Abstract: The transfer map $ t:{\pi ^s}({P_\infty }{\mathbf{C}}) \to {\pi ^s}({S^0})$ is represented by an element $ \tau \in \pi _s^{ - 1}({P_\infty }{{\mathbf{C}}^ + })$. We compute the Adams-e-invariant of $ \tau $ and use this and the splitting of the p-localization of $ {S^1} \wedge {P_\infty }{\mathbf{C}}$ into a wedge of $ (p - 1)$ spaces to prove that for a prime $ p \geqslant 5$ the p-component of the element $ [G,\mathcal{L}]$ defined by a compact Lie group G in $ \pi _ \ast ^s$ is zero in the known part of stable homotopy.
