comment Smooth 4-manifolds with $E_8$ intersection form
@AlexDegtyarev: The Enriques surface has intersection form $E_8\oplus U$, not $2U$. Indeed, its second Betti number is 10, since $b_1=0$, and the Euler characteristic is 1/2 the Euler characteristic of the K3 surface.

comment Can any Delone set be approximated by a model set?
The Delaunay triangulation is almost universally spelled that way, as in the original French form of the name, instead of the Cyrillic transliteration...

comment Can any Delone set be approximated by a model set?
Is Delone an alternate spelling of Boris Delaunay (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Delaunay), or is that someone else?

Have you tried looking at the book on Combinatorial group theory by Magnus, Karrass, and Solitar?

comment Action of the pure braid group on the commutator subgroup of a free group
For a thorough discussion of the status of the faithfulness problem for the Gassner representation, see Joan Birman's review of the paper "Braid groups are linear groups" by Seymour Bachmuth, at ams.org/mathscinet-getitem?mr=1399602

Yes, that's correct.

comment How to compute $\pi_{3}$ of $L(p,q)\# L(p',q')$?
@FernandoMuro: the group ring $\mathbb{Z} G$ of a group $G$ is the free abelian group on $G$ (as a group).

comment How to compute $\pi_{3}$ of $L(p,q)\# L(p',q')$?
The second homotopy group of $M\# N$ is the group ring of $\pi_1(M)*\pi_1(N)$. Composing with the Hopf map $S^3\to S^2$ yields non-trivial elements of $\pi_3(M\# N)$. When, say, $M$ is a lens space, we also have non-trivial elements of $\pi_3(M\# N)$ coming from $\pi_3(M)=\mathbb{Z}$.

comment Is there a finitely presented group with infinite homology over $\mathbb{Q}$?
Yes, $H_2$ of an fp group is finitely generated. But, say, $H_3$ needs not be finitely generated. The first such example was given by John Stallings, in a seminal paper, titled, sure enough, A finitely presented group whose 3-dimensional integral homology is not finitely generated, see here.

Also, "infinite homology" means "infinite-dimensional homology" (as $\mathbb{Q}$-vector space), right?

Just to make sure: the assertion that $H_i(G,\mathbb{Q})$ is finite-dimensional (for all $i>2$) is an assumption, yes?
