Abstract: In this paper we classify nonorientable topological closed 4manifolds with fundamental group up to homeomorphism. Our results give a complete list of such manifolds, and show how they can be distinguished by explicit invariants including characteristic numbers and the invariant associated to a normal structure by the spectral asymmetry of a certain Dirac operator. In contrast to the oriented case, there exist homotopy equivalent nonorientable topological 4manifolds which are stably homeomorphic (after connected sum with ) but not homeomorphic.
