Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 82

Description:
Browder-Novikov-Sullivan-Wall surgery theory investigates the homotopy types of manifolds, using a combination of algebra and topology. It is the aim of these notes to provide an introduction to the more algebraic aspects of the theory (such as the Wall surgery obstruction groups), without losing sight of the geometric motivation.

This book investigates the Steenrod algebra A2 over the field of two elements F2 in a purely algebraic context by its action on the polynomial algebra P(n) in n variables over F2. The reader is expected to have a basic knowledge of algebra.

Book cover: H Ring Spectra and Their ApplicationsH Ring Spectra and Their Applications
by - Springer
This volume concerns spectra with enriched multiplicative structure. It is a truism that interesting cohomology theories are represented by ring spectra, the product on the spectrum giving rise to the cup products in the theory.
