Abstract Let X be a PD 4 -complex with fundamental group π. We give conditions on the algebraic 2-type of X under which the homotopy type of X is determined by π, w = w 1 ( X ) , the image of [ X ] in H 4 ( π ; Z w ) and the equivariant intersection pairing on π 2 ( X ) . In particular, the homotopy type of an oriented spin 4-manifold with fundamental group a PD 2 -group π is determined by π and this pairing. 
Strongly minimal PD4-complexes
Abstract We consider the homotopy types of PD 4 -complexes X with fundamental group π such that c . d . π = 2 and π has one end. Let β = β 2 ( π ; F 2 ) and w = w 1 ( X ) . Our main result is thatExpand
PD4-Complexes and 2-Dimensional Duality Groups
This paper is a synthesis and extension of three earlier papers on PD4-complexes X such that π = π1(X) has one end and c.d.π = 2. The basic notion is that of strongly minimal PD4-complex, one forExpand
Homotopy self-equivalences of 4-manifolds with PD2 fundamental group
Abstract Based on the approach of Hambleton and Kreck, an explicit description of the group of homotopy classes of homotopy self-equivalences of an orientable 4-manifold is obtained when theExpand
On minimal Poincaré 4-complexes
We consider 2 types of minimal Poincare 4-complexes. One is defined with respect to the degree 1-map order. This idea was already present in our previous papers, and more systematically studied laterExpand

$PD_4$-complexes: constructions, cobordisms and signatures
The oriented topological cobordism group Ω4(P ) of an oriented PD4-complex P is isomorphic to Z⊕ Z. The invariants of an element {f : X → P} ∈ Ω4(P ) are the signature of X and the degree of f . WeExpand
Homotopy classification of $$\textit{PD}_4$$PD4-complexes relative an order relation
We define an order relation among oriented $$\textit{PD}_4$$PD4-complexes. We show that with respect to this relation, two $$\textit{PD}_4$$PD4-complexes over the same complex are homotopy equivalentExpand
Four-Dimensional Complexes with Fundamental Class
This paper continues the study of 4-dimensional complexes from our previous work Cavicchioli et al. (Homol Homotopy Appl 18(2):267–281, 2016; Mediterr J Math 15(2):61, 2018. Expand
Homotopy Self-Equivalences of 4-manifolds with Free Fundamental Group
Abstract We calculate the group of homotopy classes of homotopy self-equivalences of 4-manifolds with free fundamental group and obtain a classification of such 4-manifolds up to s-cobordism.


PD4-complexes with fundamental group a PD2-group
We show that if the fundamental group π of a PD4-complex X has cohomological dimension 2 there is a 2-connected degree 1 map from X to a “minimal” such complex. If moreover π has one end we relateExpand
