"Groups Which Act Freely on R^m x S^(n-1)"
Abstract: In this talk we will present a part of paper by F. Connolly and S. Prassidis. Let G be a discrete group of finite virtual cohomological dimension. One of the purposes of this paper is to answer the following question: When does G act freely and properly discontinuously on R^m x S^(n-1) for some m and n? The answer for this question is Thm A in the paper.
