Geometry & Topology
Fundamental Triples and Poincare Duality Complexes with Highly Connected Universal Covers
Bea Bleile (University of New England)
Wednesday 12 October 2016, 12:00–13:00 in Carslaw 535A.
Please join us for lunch after the talk!
We begin with an overview of the classification of Poincaré duality complexes using fundamental triples. Applied to Poincaré duality complexes with highly connected universal covers this classification verifies the first part of a conjecture by Turaev. We then establish Turaev’s conjectures on realisation and splitting of such spaces.
