## Abstract:

Vanishing results for ${\text {W}}{{\text {h}}_j}({\pi _1}M) \otimes R(R = {\mathbf {Z}},{\mathbf {Q}},{\text { or }}{\mathbf {Z}}[1/2])$ are obtained when $M$ is a closed aspherical manifold which is the total space of a bundle over an insufficiently large Seifert manifold with infinite fundamental group of hyperbolic type. Allowable fibers include Riemannian flat manifolds and closed aspherical manifolds with poly-${\mathbf {Z}}$ fundamental groups. Corollaries. concern the homotopy groups of the group ${\text {TOP}}(M)$ of self-homeomorphisms of $M$.## References
