Milnor–Wood inequalities for products

Michelle Bucher and Tsachik Gelander

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 1733–1742
Abstract

We prove Milnor–Wood inequalities for local products of manifolds. As a consequence, we establish the generalized Chern conjecture for products M × Σk of any manifold M and k copies of a surface Σ for k sufficiently large.
