Farrell–Jones spheres and inertia groups of complex projective spaces

We introduce and study a new class of homotopy spheres called Farrell–Jones spheres. Using Farrell–Jones sphere we construct examples of closed negatively curved manifolds M2n, where n = 7 or 8, which are homeomorphic but not diffeomorphic to complex hyperbolic manifolds, thereby giving a partial answer to a question raised by C. S. Aravinda and F. T. Farrell. We show that every exotic sphere not bounding a spin manifold (Hitchin sphere) is a Farrell–Jones sphere. We also discuss the relationship between inertia groups of n and Farrell–Jones spheres.

Keywords: Locally symmetric space; exotic smooth structure; complex hyperbolic; inertia groups
