Classification of Negatively Pinched Manifolds with Amenable Fundamental Groups

  title={Classification of Negatively Pinched Manifolds with Amenable Fundamental Groups},
  author={Igor Belegradek and VITALI KAPOVITCH},
We give a diffeomorphism classification of pinched negatively curved manifolds with amenable fundamental groups, namely, they are precisely the Möbius band, and the products of R with the total spaces of flat vector bundles over closed infranilmanifolds.
