Aspherical manifolds that cannot be triangulated

Michael W Davis, Jim Fowler and Jean-François Lafont

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 14 (2014) 795–803
Abstract

By a result of Manolescu [arXiv:1303.2354v2] there are topological closed n–manifolds that cannot be triangulated for each n 5. We show here that for n 6 we can choose such manifolds to be aspherical.
