Surgery on SL×En-manifolds
J.A.Hillman and S.K.Roushon
AbstractWe show that although closed SL×En-manifolds do not admit metrics of nonpositive sectional curvature, the arguments of Farrell and Jones can be extended to show that such manifolds are topologically rigid, if n≥2.
Keywords: topological rigidity, geometric structure, surgery groups.
