Isomorphims on homologies induced by cylindrical structure

This question is related to my previous question Cylindrical structure and homology. Let $S$ be a oriented compact (topological) 2-manifold. We consider a cylinder $M=S\times I$ over $S$, here $I=[0, ...

All Embeddings of a 3-D g-Handlebody Hg in S^4 is Trivial (i.e., any two embeddings are isotopic)

I think we can argue that Sg --the genus-g surface -- has only a trivial embedding in S4 , since Sg is topologically a wedge of g S1's, and there are no knotted S1's in S4 (meaning that any two ...
