Exotic Homology Manifolds
by


Number of pages: 158

Description:
Homology manifolds were developed in the first half of the 20th century to give a precise setting for Poincare's ideas on duality. Exotic homology manifolds are investigated using algebraic and geometric methods. This volume is the proceedings of the Mini-Workshop Exotic Homology manifolds held at Oberwolfach 2003.

The Hauptvermutung is the conjecture that any two triangulations of a polyhedron are combinatorially equivalent. This conjecture was formulated at the turn of the century, and until its resolution was a central problem of topology.
