Shelling 3-Cells in Compact Triangulated 3-Manifolds

L. B. Treybig
1972 Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society  
Although examples of nonshellable 3-cells are known, this paper shows that every compact 3-manifoId (with or without boundarv) has a triangulation in which every 3-cell which is the union of 3-simplexes of the triangulation can be shelled.
