On $3$-manifolds with Torus or Klein Bottle Category Two
A subset $W$ of a closed manifold $M$ is $K$-contractible, where $K$ is a torus or Kleinbottle, if the inclusion $W\rightarrow M$ factors homotopically through a map to $K$. The image of $\pi_1 (W)$ (for any base point) is a subgroup of $\pi_1 (M)$ that is isomorphic to a subgroup of a quotient group of $\pi_1 (K)$. Subsets of $M$ with this latter property are called $\mathcal{G}_K$-contractible. We obtain a list of the closed $3$-manifolds that can be covered by two open $\mathcal{G}_K$-contractible subsets. This is applied to obtain a list of the possible closed prime $3$-manifolds that can be covered by two open $K$-contractible subsets.

Keywords:Lusternik--Schnirelmann category, coverings of $3$-manifolds by open $K$-contractible sets

Surgery on $\widetilde{\mathbb{SL}} \times \mathbb{E}^n$-Manifolds
We show that closed $\widetilde{\mathbb{SL}} \times \mathbb{E}^n$-manifolds are topologically rigid if $n\geq 2$, and are rigid up to $s$-cobordism, if $n=1$.

Keywords:topological rigidity, geometric structure, surgery groups
Categories:57R67, 57N16
