Abstract: We generalize the notion of strongly poly-free groups
larger class of groups, we call them strongly poly-surface
prove that the fibered isomorphism conjecture of Farrell and Jones
to the stable topological pseudoisotopy functor is true for any
strongly poly-surface group. A consequence is that the Whitehead group
a torsion free subgroup of any virtually strongly poly-surface group
An example of a torsion free virtually strongly poly-surface group is
fundamental group of the configuration space of n number of points on a
manifold other than the sphere and the projective plane.
Look at  for an erratum and at the preprint  for a generalization and correction.
