Nonsmoothable group actions on spin 4-manifolds
[ Abstract ]
We call a locally linear group action on a topological manifold nonsmoothable
if the action is not smooth with respect to any possible smooth structure.
We show in this lecture that every closed, simply connected, spin topological 4-manifold
not homeomorphic to neither S^2\\times S^2 nor S^4 allows a nonsmoothable
group action of any cyclic group with sufficiently large prime order
which depends on the manifold.
