Abstract

For any class M of 4-manifolds, for instance the class M(G) of closed oriented manifolds with $\pi _1 (M) \cong G$ for a fixed group G, the geography of M is the set of integer pairs {(σ(M), x(M)) | M ∈ M}, where σ and X denote the signature and Euler characteristic. This paper explores general properties of the geography of M(G) and undertakes an extended study of M(Zⁿ).
