Spin structures on almost-flat manifolds

Anna Gąsior, Nansen Petrosyan and Andrzej Szczepański

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 16 (2016) 783–796
Abstract

We give a necessary and sufficient condition for almost-flat manifolds with cyclic holonomy to admit a Spin structure. Using this condition we find all 4–dimensional orientable almost-flat manifolds with cyclic holonomy that do not admit a Spin structure.

Keywords
