Note on a Theorem of Munkres

Original Paper


We prove that given a \(\mathcal{C}^\infty \) Riemannian manifold with boundary, having a finite number of compact boundary components, any fat triangulation of the boundary can be extended to the whole manifold. We also show that this result extends to \(\mathcal{C}^1 \) manifolds and to embedded PL manifolds of dimensions 2, 3 and 4. We employ these results to prove that manifolds of the types above admit quasimeromorphic mappings onto \(\widehat{\mathbb{R}^n }.\) As an application we prove the existence of G-automorphic quasimeromorphic mappings, where G is a Kleinian group acting on \(\mathbb{H}^n .\)
