A simple construction of taut submanifolds

Dishant M Pancholi

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 17 (2017) 17–24

We show that any integral second cohomology class of a closed manifold Xn, n 4, admits, as a Poincaré dual, a submanifold N such that X N has a handle decomposition with no handles of index bigger than (n + 1)2. In particular, if X is an almost complex manifold of dimension at least 6, the complement can be given a structure of a Stein manifold.
