Algebraic and Geometric Surgery
by Andrew Ranicki
Publisher: Oxford University Press 2002
Number of pages: 380
This book is an introduction to surgery theory: the standard classification method for high-dimensional manifolds. It is aimed at graduate students, who have already had a basic topology course, and would now like to understand the topology of high-dimensional manifolds.

This textbook on elementary topology contains a detailed introduction to general topology and an introduction to algebraic topology via its most classical and elementary segment centered at the notions of fundamental group and covering space.

These notes are a supplement to a first year graduate course in manifold theory. These are the topics covered: Manifolds (Smooth Manifolds, Projective Space, Matrix Spaces); Basic Tensor Analysis; Basic Cohomology Theory; Characteristic Classes.

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.

The book present original research on a wide range of topics in modern topology: the algebraic K-theory of spaces, the algebraic obstructions to surgery and finiteness, geometric and chain complexes, characteristic classes, and transformation groups.
