We construct the first examples of manifolds, the simplest one being S3×S4×R5, which admit infinitely many complete nonnegatively curved metrics with pairwise nonhomeomorphic souls. According to the soul theorem of J. Cheeger and D. Gromoll [CG72], a complete open manifold of nonnegative sectional curvature is diffeomorphic to the total space of the normal(More)
