##### Abstract

In this paper we consider two connected closed Haken manifolds denoted by ${M}^{3}$ and ${N}^{3}$, with the same Gromov simplicial volume. We give a simple homological criterion to decide when a given map $f:\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}{M}^{3}\to {N}^{3}$ between ${M}^{3}$ and ${N}^{3}$ can be changed by a homotopy to a homeomorphism. We then give a convenient process for constructing maps between ${M}^{3}$ and ${N}^{3}$ satisfying the homological hypothesis of the map $f$.
