0. Introduction.
Consider the problem of nding a constant curvature metric on a given closed 3-manifold M . It is
known that essential spheres and tori, (except in the case of at manifolds), prevent the existence of
such metrics, but it is unknown if there are other topological obstructions. We approach this issue
