Towers of regular self-covers and linear endomorphisms of tori

Geometry & Topology 22 (2018) 2427–2464
Abstract

Let M be a closed manifold that admits a self-cover p: M M of degree > 1. We say p is strongly regular if all iterates pn: M M are regular covers. In this case, we establish an algebraic structure theorem for the fundamental group of M: We prove that π1(M) surjects onto a nontrivial free abelian group A, and the self-cover is induced by a linear endomorphism of A. Under further hypotheses we show that a finite cover of M admits the structure of a principal torus bundle. We show that this applies when M is Kähler and p is a strongly regular, holomorphic self-cover, and prove that a finite cover of M splits as a product with a torus factor.
