MANIFOLDS WITH TRIVIAL HOMOLOGY GROUPS IN SOME RANGE AS CODIMENSION-K FIBRATORS Im, Young-Ho;
Approximate fibrations provide a useful class of maps. Fibrators give instant detection of maps in this class, and PL fibrators do the same in the PL category. We show that rational homology spheres with some additional conditions are codimension-k PL fibrators and PL manifolds with trivial homology groups in some range can be codimension-k (k > 2) PL fibrators.
