Finitely dominated subnormal covers of 4-manifolds
Jonathan A. Hillman
AbstractLet M be a closed 4-manifold which has a finitely dominated covering space associated to a subnormal subgroup G of infinite index in π=π1(M). If G is FP3, has finitely many ends and π is virtually torsion free then either M is aspherical or its universal covering space is homotopy equivalent to S2 or S3. In the aspherical case such a subgroup is usually Z, a surface group or a PD3-group. [This is a revision of a 1994 Sydney Research Report].
Keywords: finitely dominated, 4-manifold, Poincaré duality, subnormal.
