Abstract Let $M$ be a topological spherical space form, i.e., a smooth manifold whose universal cover is a homotopy sphere. We determine the number of path components of the space and moduli space of Riemannian metrics with positive scalar curvature on $M$ if the dimension of $M$ is at least 5 and $M$ is not simply-connected.

In this note we survey a selection of classical results and recent advances concerning our understanding of spaces of positive scalar metrics on closed manifolds, and describe how the basic questions


Deforming three-manifolds with positive scalar curvature
In this paper we prove that the moduli space of metrics with positive scalar curvature of an orientable compact 3-manifold is path-connected. The proof uses the Ricci flow with surgery, the conformal
Spaces and moduli spaces of Riemannian metrics
These notes present and survey results about spaces and moduli spaces of complete Riemannian metrics with curvature bounds on open and closed manifolds, here focussing mainly on connectedness and
Topological spherical space forms
Free actions of finite groups on spheres give rise to topological spherical space forms. The existence and classification problems for space forms have a long history in the geometry and topology of
Positive scalar curvature and periodic fundamental groups

Ricci flow and contractibility of spaces of metrics
Author(s): Bamler, Richard H; Kleiner, Bruce | Abstract: We show that the space of metrics of positive scalar curvature on any 3-manifold is either empty or contractible. Second, we show that the
Metrics of Positive Scalar Curvature on Spherical Space Forms
We use the eta invariant to show every non-simply connected spherical space form of dimension m 5 has a count-able family of non bordant metrics of positive scalar curvature. Let M be a compact
Simply connected manifolds of positive scalar curvature
Hitchin proved that if M is a spin manifold with positive scalar curvature, then the A^O-characteristic number a(M) vanishes. Gromov and Lawson conjectured that for a simply connected spin manifold M
