We study the family of closed Riemannian n-manifolds with holonomy group isomorphic to Z2n-1, which we call generalized Hantzsche-Wendt manifolds. We prove results on their structure, compute some invariants, and find relations between them, illustrated in a graph connecting the family.

Spin structures on Hantzsche-Wendt manifolds

Kähler flat manifolds

Using a criterion of Johnson-Rees [9] we give a list of all four and six dimensional flat Kähler manifolds. We calculate their R–cohomology, including the Hodge numbers. As a corollary, we classify

Properties of generalized Hantzsche–Wendt groups

Let M be a closed Riemannian manifold of dimension n. We shall call M a generalized Hantzsche–Wendt manifold (GHW manifold for short, cf. [11]) if the holonomy group of M is isomorphic to ðZ2Þ ,

Spin Structures on Flat Manifolds

Abstract.The aim of this paper is to present some results about spin structures on flat manifolds. We prove that any finite group can be the holonomy group of a flat spin manifold. Moreover, we shall

On products of harmonic forms

We prove that manifolds admitting a Riemannian metric for which products of harmonic forms are harmonic satisfy strong topological restrictions, some of which are akin to properties of flat

Topological obstructions to nonnegative curvature

Abstract. We find new obstructions to the existence of complete Riemannian metric of nonnegative sectional curvature on manifolds with infinite fundamental groups. In particular, we construct many

Torsion-free groups with indecomposable holonomy group. I

We study the torsion free generalized crystallographic groups with the indecomposable holonomy group which is isomorphic to either a cyclic group of order p s or a direct product of two cyclic groups

On torsion-Free Metabelian Groups with Commutator Quotients of Prime Exponent

It is shown that k≤3 for all primes p and all ranks k≥3, except for p=2, k=3, because of the commutator quotient.

Computation of Five-and Six-Dimensional Bieberbach Groups

The basis of an algorithm that decides torsion-freeness of a crystallographic group as well as the triviality of its centre is described, which handles enumeration, construction, recognition and comparison problems for crystallographic groups up to dimension 6.
