Abstract

The quantum physicists Durhuus and Jonsson (1995) introduced the class of "locally constructible" (LC) triangulated manifolds and showed that all the LC 2- and 3-manifolds are spheres. We show here that for each d > 3 some LC d-manifolds are not spheres. We prove this result by studying how to collapse products of manifolds with one facet removed.
