    Abstract

    The space of algebraic (Laurent polynomial) free loops on a sphere is filtered by the degree. It is shown that this filtration admits a natural stable splitting that corresponds to the known splitting, as a wedge of Thom spaces, of the homotopy-equivalent space of continuous loops.
