Exotic Homology Manifolds by Frank Quinn, Andrew Ranicki

Exotic Homology Manifolds
by


Number of pages: 158

Description:
Homology manifolds were developed in the first half of the 20th century to give a precise setting for Poincare's ideas on duality. Exotic homology manifolds are investigated using algebraic and geometric methods. This volume is the proceedings of the Mini-Workshop Exotic Homology manifolds held at Oberwolfach 2003.

Our goal in this book is to explain as many important theorems, examples, and techniques as possible, as quickly and directly as possible, while at the same time giving (nearly) full details and keeping the text (nearly) selfcontained.

These pages are really just an early draft of the initial chapters of a real book on 3-manifolds. The text does contain a few things that aren't readily available elsewhere, like the Jaco-Shalen/Johannson torus decomposition theorem.

An introduction to the theory of finite type (Vassiliev) knot invariants, with a stress on its combinatorial aspects. Written for readers with no background in this area, and we care more about the basic notions than about more advanced material.

We construct knot invariants categorifying the quantum knot variants for all representations of quantum groups. We show that these invariants coincide with previous invariants defined by Khovanov for sl_2 and sl_3 and by Mazorchuk-Stroppel...
