Minimal genera of open $4$–manifolds

Preprint, Other literature type English OPEN
Gompf, Robert E.;

We study exotic smoothings of open [math] –manifolds using the minimal-genus function and its analog for end homology. While traditional techniques in open [math] –manifold smoothing theory give no control of minimal genera, we make progress by using the adjunction ineq... View more
