Exotic affine space
In algebraic geometry, an exotic affine space is a complex algebraic variety that is diffeomorphic to for some n, but is not isomorphic as an algebraic variety to . An example of an exotic is the Koras–Russell cubic threefold, which is the subset of defined by the polynomial equation
