Classification of certain 6-manifolds

  • P. E. Jupp (a1)


In (13) Wall classified up to diffeomorphism, PL-homeomorphism, topological homeomorphism, and homotopy equivalence all closed, oriented, 1-connected smooth (or PL) 6-manifolds with torsion-free homology and vanishing second Stiefel-Whitney class. This paper extends these classifications to all closed, oriented, 1-connected topological 6-manifolds with torsion-free homology. The method differs from that of (13) but uses two special cases of Wall's classification.
