9780521420242: Algebraic L-theory and Topological Manifolds (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics)

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 Poincaré duality space with a local quadratic structure in the chain homotopy type of the universal cover. The difference between the homotopy types of manifolds and Poincaré duality spaces is identified with the fibre of the algebraic L-theory assembly map, which passes from local to global quadratic duality structures on chain complexes. 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.

Book Description:

Assuming no previous acquaintance with surgery theory and justifying all the algebraic concepts used by their relevance to topology, Dr Ranicki explains the applications of quadratic forms to the classification of topological manifolds, in a unified algebraic framework.

Review:

"...develops lower K- and L-theory with a view to applications in topology....Apart from the obvious interest of this text both to topologists and to K-theorists, it also serves as an introduction to the field, since there is a comprehensive survey of previous results and applications." M.E. Keating, Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society
