### Abstract

We consider the existence of finite G-CW complexes X homotopy equivalent to spheres, for which the G-action on X has rank one isotropy. A variety of techniques are involved, including homological algebra over the orbit category. New infinite families of non-linear actions are constructed. This is joint work with Semra Pamuk and Ergun Yalcin.
