Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 92

Description:
This is an introductory article on high dimensional knots for the beginners. Is there a nontrivial high dimensional knot? We first answer this question. After that, we explain local moves on high dimensional knots and the projections of high dimensional knots.

Book cover: Algebraic and Geometric SurgeryAlgebraic and Geometric Surgery
by - Oxford University Press
Surgery theory is the standard method for the classification of high-dimensional manifolds, where high means 5 or more. This book aims to be an entry point to surgery theory for a reader who already has some background in topology.

by - Cambridge University Press
Assuming no previous acquaintance with surgery theory and justifying all the algebraic concepts used by their relevance to topology, Dr Ranicki explains the applications of quadratic forms to the classification of topological manifolds.

Book cover: Foliations and the Geometry of 3-manifoldsFoliations and the Geometry of 3-manifolds
by - Oxford University Press
The book gives an exposition of the 'pseudo-Anosov' theory of foliations of 3-manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms, and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions.
