Â© 2017 American Mathematical Society. We construct some contractible manifolds with uncountably many nonconcordant complete positive scalar curvature metrics and some with none at all, detected via a (Formula Presented.)-invariant. The construction uses methods of geometric group theory combined with surgery theory, and the method of obstruction uses a new index theory for complete manifolds that the authors introduced in .
