Abstract: This paper deals with the classification of cyclic group actions on spheres using the Atiyah-Singer invariant and Reidemeister-type torsion. Our main tool is the computation of the group of relative homotopy triangulations of the product of a disk and a lens space. These results are applied to obtain lower bounds on the image of an equivariant $ J$-homomorphism.
