We present the first known nontrivial topological obstructions to the existence of partially hyperbolic diffeomorphisms. In particular, we show that there are no partially hyperbolic diffeomorphisms on the 3-sphere. More generally, we show that for a partially hyperbolic diffeomorphismof a 3-manifoldwith an Abelian fundamental group, the induced action in the first homology group is partially hyperbolic. This improves the results of [4] by dropping the assumption of dynamical coherence.
