Homotopy Classification of PD3-pairs

Bea Bleile


Hendriks gave a complete system of homotopy invariants of PD3-complexes in 1977. Turaev provided an alternative proof of Hendriks' classification theorem in 1981. We generalise Turaev's proof to the case of PD3-pairs.

Keywords: PD3-pairs, homotopy invariants.
