Decomposability of quotients by complex conjugation for rational and Enriques surfaces

The quotients Y = X/conj by the complex conjugation conj:X --> X for complex rational and Enriques surfaces X defined over R are shown to be diffeomorphic to connected sums of <(CP)over bar>(2), whenever the Y are simply connected. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
