Abstract: In this paper we introduce a systematic method for calculating the group of stable equivariant maps $ {[X,\,Y]^G}$ [3, 18] into a $ G$-free space or spectrum $ Y$. In fact the method applies without restriction on $ X$ whenever $ G$ is a $ p$-group and $ Y$ is $ p$-complete and satisfies standard finiteness assumptions. The method is an Adams spectral sequence based on a new equivariant cohomology theory $ {c^{\ast}}(X)$ which we introduce in $ \S1$. This spectral sequence is quite calculable and provides a natural generalisation of the classical Adams spectral sequence based on ordinary $ \bmod p$ cohomology. It also geometrically realises certain inverse limits of nonequivariant Adams spectral sequences which have been useful in the study of the Segal conjecture [19, 5, 21, 9].
