**Exact Sequences in the Algebraic Theory of Surgery**

by Andrew Ranicki

**Publisher**: Princeton University Press 1981**ISBN/ASIN**: 0691082766**ISBN-13**: 9780691082769**Number of pages**: 881

**Description**:

One of the principal aims of surgery theory is to classify the homotopy types of manifolds using tools from algebra and topology. The algebraic approach is emphasized in this book, and it gives the reader a good overview of the subject, as it was known at the time of publication.

**Noncommutative Localization in Algebra and Topology**

by

**Andrew Ranicki**-

**Cambridge University Press**

Noncommutative localization is a technique for constructing new rings by inverting elements, matrices and more generally morphisms of modules. The applications to topology are via the noncommutative localizations of the fundamental group rings.
