      Contractible 3-manifolds and Positive scalar curvature 45m 2.058


      It is not known whether a contractible 3-manifold admits a complete metric of positive scalar curvature. For example, the Whitehead manifold is a contractible 3-manifold but not homeomorphic to $R^3$. In this talk, we will present my proof that it does not have a complete metric of non-negative scalar curvature. I will further explain that a contractible genus one 3-manifold, a notion introduced by McMillan, does not have a complete metric of non-negative scalar curvature.

      Scalar positive immersions 45m 0.019


      As shown by Gromov-Lawson and Stolz the only obstruction to the existence of positive scalar curvature metrics on closed simply connected manifolds in dimensions at least five appears on spin manifolds, and is given by the non-vanishing of the alpha-genus of Hitchin.

      When unobstructed we shall realise a positive scalar curvature metric by an immersion into Euclidean space whose dimension is uniformly close to the classical Whitney upper bound for smooth immersions.
      Our main tool is an extrinsic counterpart of the well-known Gromov-Lawson surgery procedure for constructing positive scalar curvature metrics.
