LMS 4 - Raum 312 - Diskussionsraum


 I will present an introduction to flat and almost flat manifolds.  Then I will define a spin-structure on such objects and finally  I will prove the following:

 Let M be any almost-flat oriented 4-manifold different from the torus  with intersection form Q_{M}. Then  Q_{M} = 0 if the first Betti number b_1(M) = 1, Q_{M} = H if b_1(M) = 2  and Q_{M} = 2H if b_1(M) = 3.  Here H is the hyperbolic form with intersection matrix [0,1  1,0] of rank 2.
