Abstract:We later apply gccc's to the study of the Property P Conjecture. We show that every 3-manifold obtained by surgery on a knot in S 3 has a spine which is a gccc. Let M denote the surgery manifold and let X denote the gccc spine. We define the dual, X*, of X and show that if M is a homotopy 3-sphere, then X* 3-deforms to a point.
