S-cubes. (English) Zbl 0591.57014
Let \(I^ n\) be the n-dimensional cube and \(J^ n_ i\) its i-th ”double face”. Let \(s_ i: \partial I^ n\to \partial I^ n\) be the symmetry of \(\partial I^ n\) with respect to the hyperplane \(x_ i=0\). Denote by G the group generated by the set \(\{s_ 1,...,s_ n\}\). To each n-tuple \((u^ 1,...,u^ n)\in G^ n\) a factor space of \(I^ n\) is assigned as follows: Let S be the binary relation on \(I^ n\) defined via xSy \(\Leftrightarrow x=y\) or there is an index \(i\in \{1,2,...,n\}\) such that \(x,y\in J^ n_ i\) and \(x=u^ i(y)\). The space \(I^ n/T\), where T is the smallest equivalence relation on \(I^ n\) containing S, is denoted by \(I^ n/(u^ 1,...,u^ n)\) and called an s-cube.
In the paper some basic properties of s-cubes are proved. A necessary and sufficient condition for an s-cube to be a manifold is found.
