Knot Invariants and Higher Representation Theory
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 87

Description:
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 and Sussan for sl_n.

Book cover: Diffeomorphisms of Elliptic 3-ManifoldsDiffeomorphisms of Elliptic 3-Manifolds
by - arXiv
The elliptic 3-manifolds are the closed 3-manifolds that admit a Riemannian metric of constant positive curvature. For any elliptic 3-manifold M, the inclusion from the isometry group of M to the diffeomorphism group of M is a homotopy equivalence.

by - Cambridge University Press
This is the first treatment of the applications of the lower K- and L-groups to the topology of manifolds such as Euclidean spaces, via Whitehead torsion and the Wall finiteness and surgery obstructions. Only elementary constructions are used.

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.
