On the second cohomology group of a pinched Riemannian manifold

  • Grigorios Tsagas


Let M be a compact orientable Riemannian manifold of dimension even. We assume that the manifold can carry a metric, which is positively k-pinked. In the present paper some properties of the second cohomology group of such a manifold are obtained, when the number k is greater than a number which depends on the dimension of the manifold. These properties have some applications on the topological product of some special manifolds.
