**Publisher**: Cambridge University Press 2011**ISBN/ASIN**: 0521055210**Number of pages**: 365

**Description**:

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, in a unified algebraic framework.
