The double $n\mkern-1.5mu$–space property for contractible $n\mkern-1.5mu$–manifolds

Abstract

Motivated by a recent paper of Gabai (J. Topol. 4 (2011) 529–534) on the Whitehead contractible 3–manifold, we investigate contractible manifolds Mn which decompose or split as Mn = A CB with A,B,C n or A,B,C Bn. Of particular interest to us is the case n = 4. Our main results exhibit large collections of 4–manifolds that split in this manner.
