Abstract: R. E. Heisey introduced piecewise linear $ {{\mathbf{R}}^\infty }$-structures and defined piecewise linear $ {{\mathbf{R}}^\infty }$-manifolds. In this paper we show that two piecewise linear $ {{\mathbf{R}}^\infty }$-manifolds are isomorphic if they have the same homotopy type. From the Open Embedding Theorem for (topological) $ {{\mathbf{R}}^\infty }$-manifolds and this result, we have the title.
