A gauge-field approach to 3- and 4-manifold invariants

Bogusław Broda (1997)

Banach Center Publications

An approach to construction of topological invariants of the Reshetikhin-Turaev-Witten type of 3- and 4-dimensional manifolds in the framework of SU(2) Chern-Simons gauge theory and its hidden (quantum) gauge symmetry is presented.

Construction of Einstein metrics by generalized Dehn filling

Richard H. Bamler (2012)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

In this paper, we present a new approach to the construction of Einstein metrics by a generalization of Thurston's Dehn filling. In particular in dimension 3, we will obtain an analytic proof of Thurston's result.

Contact topology and the structure of 5-manifolds with π 1 = 2

Hansjörg Geiges, Charles B. Thomas (1998)

Annales de l'institut Fourier

We prove a structure theorem for closed, orientable 5-manifolds M with fundamental group π 1 ( M ) = 2 and second Stiefel-Whitney class equal to zero on H 2 ( M ) . This structure theorem is then used to construct contact structures on such manifolds by applying contact surgery to fake projective spaces and certain 2 -quotients of  S 2 × S 3 .
