For a brief discussion of topology of manifolds which is the context for the conjectures, including more refined statements, see Shmuel Weinberger's review [Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. 33 (), pp. ] of the book by Andrew Ranicki, Algebraic L-theory and topological manifolds, Cambridge Tracts in Math., Vol. , Cambridge Univ. Press (). $\begingroup$ John Lee's book "Intro to Smooth Manifolds" is a classic with a nice section on DeRham theory (the cohomology of differential forms, dual to submanifolds by the pairing "integration"). Bott and Tu, "Differential Forms in Algebraic Topology" is a little more advanced, but well-written. Certainly take a look at it. This is the classic way to use duality to represent .

I used simplicial complexes of the Wikipedia kind in my CUP book Algebraic L-theory and Topological Manifolds to construct the algebraic L-theory assembly map. The construction was extended to $\Delta$-sets (in the sense of Rourke and Sanderson - not to be confused with Allen Hatcher's $\Delta$-complexes) in my joint paper with. Decomposition theory studies decompositions, or partitions, of manifolds into simple pieces, usually cell-like sets. Since its inception in , the subject has become an important tool in geometric topology. The main goal of the book is to help students interested in geometric topology to bridge the gap between entry-level graduate courses and research at the frontier 3/5(1).

The author calls the relationship between topological manifolds, Poincare spaces, local algebraic Poincare complexes, and global algebraic Poincare complexes a "fiber square" in the book. In analogy with hermitian K-theory, the quadratic L-groups were defined by the author in a previous work as cobordism of quadratic Poincare complexes over a Cited by: Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Algebraic L-theory and Topological Manifolds (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics) at Read honest and 5/5(1).

The term ‘algebraic L-theory’ was coined by Wall, to mean the algebraic K-theory of quadratic forms, alias hermitian K-theory.

[Andrew Ranicki] -- The Browder-Novikov-Sullivan-Wall surgery theory emerged in the s as the Algebraic L-theory and topological manifolds book technique for classifying high-dimensional topological manifolds, using the algebraic L.

The algebraic L-theory assembly map is used to give a purely algebraic formulation of the Novikov conjectures on the homotopy invariance of the higher signatures; any other formulation necessarily factors through this one.

In principle, it is possible to start with the Introduction, and go on to the topology in Part II, referring back to Part I for novel algebraic concepts. Author(s): A. This book presents the definitive account of the applications of this algebra to the surgery classification of topological manifolds.

The central result is the identification of a manifold structure in the homotopy type of a Poincare duality space with a local quadratic structure in the chain homotopy type of the universal cover. dict the algebraic K-and L-theory of group rings and the topological K-theory of reduced group C -algebras.

These theories are of major interest for many reasons.

2 "Exact sequences in the algebraic theory of surgery" book 3 "Algebraic L-theory and topological manifolds" book 4 "The total surgery obstruction" MPIM lecture. 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.

( views) Algebraic L-theory and Topological Manifolds by A. Ranicki - Cambridge University Press, Surgery theory expresses the manifold structure set in terms of the topological K-theory of vector bundles and the algebraic L-theory of quadratic forms.

While concentrating on the basic mechanics of surgery, this book includes many worked examples, useful drawings for illustration of the algebra and references for further reading. This book is an introduction to surgery theory, the standard algebraic topology classification method for manifolds of dimension greater than 4.

It is aimed at those who have already been on a basic topology course, and would now like to understand the topology of high-dimensional manifolds. This text contains entry-level accounts of the various prerequisites of both algebra Author: Andrew Ranicki.

The structure space \mathcal{S}(M) of a closed topological m-manifold M classifies bundles whose fibers are closed m-manifolds equipped with a homotopy equivalence to M. The authors construct a highly connected map from \mathcal{S}(M) to a concoction of algebraic L-theory and algebraic K-theory spaces associated with M.and Cappell on the algebraic K- and L-theory of generalized free prod-ucts.

In a sense, this is more in the nature of an application of topology to noncommutative localization! But this algebra has in turn topological applications, since in dimensions >5 the surgery classiﬁcation of manifolds within a homotopy type reduces to algebra.
