Domination by geometric 4-manifolds

Jonathan A. Hillman


We consider aspects of the question "when is a closed orientable 4-manifold dominated by another such manifold \(X\)?, focusing on the cases when \(X\) is geometric or fibres non-trivially over a closed orientable surface.

Keywords: aspherical, dominate, geometry, 4-manifold,.
