In the present paper we show that the only closed orientable PL 5-manifolds of regular genus less or equal to seven are the 5-sphere $S^5$ and the connected sum of m copies of $S^1 X S^4$, with $m \le 7$. As a consequence, the genus of $S^3 X S^2$ is proved to be eight. This suggests a possible approach to the (3-dimensional) Poincarè Conjecture, via the well-known classification of simply connected 5-manifolds, obtained by Smale and Barden.

Abstract

In the present paper we show that the only closed orientable PL 5-manifolds of regular genus less or equal to seven are the 5-sphere $S^5$ and the connected sum of m copies of $S^1 X S^4$, with $m \le 7$. As a consequence, the genus of $S^3 X S^2$ is proved to be eight. This suggests a possible approach to the (3-dimensional) Poincarè Conjecture, via the well-known classification of simply connected 5-manifolds, obtained by Smale and Barden.
