Real Computable Manifolds and Homotopy Groups [chapter]

Wesley Calvert, Russell Miller
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We state definitions of real-computable manifold and of real-computable paths in such manifolds, and show that, while BSS machines cannot in general decide such questions as nullhomotopy and simple connectedness  ...  for such structures, there are nevertheless real-computable presentations of paths and homotopy equivalence classes under which such computations are possible.  ...  In [3] , Brown proved that it was possible, from a presentation of a manifold as a finite simplicial complex, to compute a presentation for each of the homotopy groups of the manifold, including π 1 .  ...

A Topological Obstruction to the Removal of a Degenerate Complex Tangent and Some Related Homotopy and Homology Groups [article]

Ali M. Elgindi

We further compute additional homotopy and homology groups for the space Y and of its complement W consisting of "partially complex" 3-planes in C^3.  ...  The obstruction is a certain homotopy class of the space Y consisting of totally real 3-planes in the Grassmanian of real 3-planes in C^3 (=R^6).  ...  The Homotopy Groups of Y In this section, we compute the first two homotopy groups of the space Y consisting of totally real 3-planes in G 6,3 .  ...

A separable manifold failing to have the homotopy type of a CW-complex [article]

Alexandre Gabard
2006 arXiv   pre-print
We show that the Pr\"ufer surface, which is a separable non-metrizable 2-manifold, has not the homotopy type of a CW-complex. This will follow easily from J. H. C.  ...  Whitehead's result: if one has a good approximation of an arbitrary space by a CW-complex, which fails to be a homotopy equivalence, then the given space is not homotopy equivalent to a CW-complex.  ...  I am very much obliged to Matthew Baillif for precious guidance through some theory of non-metrizable manifolds, and to André Haefliger for suggesting the method to compute π i (R).  ...

A family of cohomological complex projective spaces [article]

2018 arXiv   pre-print
We exhibit a family of complex manifolds, which has a member at each odd complex dimension and which has the same cohomology groups as the complex projective space at that dimension, but not homotopy equivalent  ...  The first author would like to thank to his father and family for their support during the preparation of this paper. This work is partially supported by the grant ♯114F320 of Tübitak 1 .  ...  Considering the homotopy groups, the Stiefel manifold V 2 R 2k is 2k-3 connected and the 2k-2-nd homotopy group of it is Z.  ...
