Let $\pi$ be a group satisfying the Farrell-Jones conjecture and assume that $B\pi$ is a 4-dimensional Poincare duality space. We consider closed, topological, almost spin manifolds with fundamental group $\pi$ whose canonical map to $B\pi$ has degree 1 and show that two such manifolds are s-cobordant if and only if their equivariant intersection forms are isometric. If $\pi$ is good in the sense of Freedman, it follows that two such manifolds are homeomorphic if and only if they are homotopy… Expand


Topological rigidity for non-aspherical manifolds
The Borel Conjecture predicts that closed aspherical manifolds are topological rigid. We want to investigate when a non-aspherical oriented connected closed manifold M is topological rigid in theExpand
4-Manifold topology I: Subexponential groups
The technical lemma underlying the 5-dimensional topologicals-cobordism conjecture and the 4-dimensional topological surgery conjecture is a purely smooth category statement about locating π1-nullExpand
Surgery and duality
Surgery, as developed by Browder, Kervaire, Milnor, Novikov, Sullivan, Wall and others is a method for comparing homotopy types of topological spaces with difieomorphism or homeomorphism types ofExpand
Closed oriented 4-manifolds with the same geometrically two-dimensional fundamental group (satisfying certain properties) are classified up to s-cobordism by their w2-type, equivariant intersectionExpand
Homotopy invariance of 4-manifold decompositions: Connected sums
Abstract Given any homotopy equivalence f : M → X 1 # ⋯ # X n of closed orientable 4-manifolds, where each fundamental group π 1 ( X i ) satisfies Freedmanʼs Null Disc Lemma, we show that M isExpand
A survey of 4-manifolds through the eyes of surgery
Surgery theory is a method for constructing manifolds satisfying a given collection of homotopy conditions. It is usually combined with the s{cobordism theorem which constructs homeomorphisms orExpand
Stable classification of 4‐manifolds with 3‐manifold fundamental groups
We study closed, oriented 4-manifolds whose fundamental group is that of a closed, oriented, aspherical 3-manifold. We show that two such 4-manifolds are stably diffeomorphic if and only if they haveExpand
The topology of four-dimensional manifolds
0. Introduction Manifold topology enjoyed a golden age in the late 1950's and 1960's. Of the mysteries still remaining after that period of great success the most compelling seemed to lie inExpand
Spaces over a category and assembly maps in isomorphism conjectures in K- and L-theory.
We give a unified approach to the Isomorphism Conjecture of Farrell and Jones on the algebraic K- and L-theory of integral group rings and to the Baum-Connes Conjecture on the topological K-theory ofExpand
PD4-complexes with strongly minimal models
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 ]Expand
