Gromov's macroscopic dimension conjecture

Dmitry V Bolotov

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 6 (2006) 1669–1676

arXiv: 0904.4886

Abstract

In this note we construct a closed 4–manifold having torsion-free fundamental group and whose universal covering is of macroscopic dimension 3. This yields a counterexample to Gromov’s conjecture about the falling of macroscopic dimension.
