Topology of closed hypersurfaces of small entropy

Jacob Bernstein and Lu Wang

Geometry & Topology 22 (2018) 1109–1141
Abstract

We use a weak mean curvature flow together with a surgery procedure to show that all closed hypersurfaces in 4 with entropy less than or equal to that of S2 × , the round cylinder in 4, are diffeomorphic to S3.
