Abstract

Let $X$ be a two-cell complex with attaching map $\alpha\colon S^q\to S^p$, and let $C_X$ be the cofiber of the diagonal inclusion $X\to X\times X$. It is shown that the topological complexity (${\rm TC}$) of $X$ agrees with the Lusternik-Schnirelmann category (${\rm cat}$) of $C_X$ in the (almost stable) range $q\leq2p-1$. In addition, the equality ${\rm TC}(X)={\rm cat}(C_X)$ is proved in the (strict) metastable range $2p-1
