## Conjecture about mapping class groups of 1-connected 5-manifolds

Let $M$$#REDIRECT [[Talk:5-manifolds: 1-connected/ 1st edition]]M$ be a closed, smooth, 1-connected 5-manifold, Matthias Kreck and Diarmuid Crowley conjecture that there is an isomorphism of abelian groups

$\displaystyle \pi_0(\SDiff(M)) \cong \Omega_6(B_2(M))$

where $B_2(M)$$B_2(M)$ is the normal $2$$2$-type of $M$$M$ as defined in [Kreck1999]. For example, if $M$$M$ is Spinable with $H_2(M) \cong H$$H_2(M) \cong H$ then

$\displaystyle \Omega_6(B_2(M)) \cong \Omega_6^{Spin}(K(H, 2)).$

At present we are checking the details of the proof of this conjecture using the methods of [Kreck1999].
