Let $M$ be any compact simply-connected oriented $d$-dimensional smooth manifold and let $\mathbb{F}$ be any field. We show that the Gerstenhaber algebra structure on the Hochschild cohomology on the singular cochains of $M$, $H{H}^{*}({S}^{*}\left(M\right),{S}^{*}\left(M\right))$, extends to a Batalin-Vilkovisky algebra. Such Batalin-Vilkovisky algebra was conjectured to exist and is expected to be isomorphic to the Batalin-Vilkovisky algebra on the free loop space homology on $M$, ${H}_{*+d}\left(LM\right)$ introduced by Chas and Sullivan. We also show that the negative cyclic cohomology $H{C}_{-}^{*}\left({S}^{*}\left(M\right)\right)$...

We show that the second group of cohomology with compact supports is nontrivial for three-dimensional systolic pseudomanifolds. It follows that groups acting geometrically on such spaces are not Poincaré duality groups.

We show that all finite-dimensional resolvable generalized manifolds with the piecewise disjoint arc-disk property are codimension one manifold factors. We then show how the piecewise disjoint arc-disk property and other general position properties that detect codimension one manifold factors are related. We also note that in every example presently known to the authors of a codimension one manifold factor of dimension n ≥ 4 determined by general position properties, the piecewise disjoint arc-disk...
