# Examples of non-formal closed $(k-1)$-connected manifolds of dimensions $4k-1$ and more

@article{Dranishnikov2003ExamplesON, title={Examples of non-formal closed \$(k-1)\$-connected manifolds of dimensions \$4k-1\$ and more}, author={Alexander Dranishnikov and Yuli B. Rudyak}, journal={arXiv: Algebraic Topology}, year={2003} }

We construct closed $(k-1)$-connected manifolds of dimensions $\ge 4k-1$ that possess non-trivial rational Massey triple products. We also construct examples of manifolds $M$ such that all the cup-products of elements of $H^k(M)$ vanish, while the group $H^{3k-1}(M;\Q)$ is generated by Massey products: such examples are useful for theory of systols.

For a formal differential graded algebra, if extended by an odd degree element, we prove that the extended algebra has an $A_\infty$-minimal model with only $m_2$ and $m_3$ non-trivial. As an…

We define the Bianchi–Massey tensor of a topological space X to be a linear map B→H∗(X) , where B is a subquotient of H∗(X)⊗4 determined by the algebra H∗(X) . We then prove that if M is a closed…
