In this short note, exploits of constructions of F-structures coupled with technology developed by Cheeger–Gromov and Paternain–Petean are seen to yield a procedure to compute minimal entropy, minimal volume, Yamabe invariant and to study collapsing with bounded sectional curvature on inequivalent smooth structures and inequivalent PL-structures within a fixed homeomorphism class. We compute these fundamental Riemannian invariants for every high-dimensional smooth manifold on the homeomorphism class of any smooth manifold that admits a Riemannian metric of zero sectional curvature. This includes all exotic and all fake tori of dimension greater than four. We observe that the minimal volume is not an invariant of the smooth structures, yet the Yamabe invariant does discern the standard smooth structure from all the others. We also observe that the fundamental group places no restriction on the vanishing of the minimal volume and collapse with bounded sectional curvature for high-dimensional manifolds.
