Low-dimensional surgery and the Yamabe invariant

Abstract : Assume that M is a compact n-dimensional manifold and that N is obtained by surgery along a k-dimensional sphere, k <= n - 3. The smooth Yamabe invariants sigma(M) and sigma(N) satisfy sigma(N) >= min(sigma(M), Lambda) for a constant Lambda > 0 depending only on n and k. We derive explicit positive lower bounds for A in dimensions where previous methods failed, namely for (n, k) is an element of {(4, 1), (5, 1), (5, 2), (6, 3), (9, 1), (10, 1)}. With methods from surgery theory and bordism theory several gap phenomena for smooth Yamabe invariants can be deduced.
