Algebraic and Geometric Surgery by Andrew Ranicki
Book DescriptionThis book is an introduction to surgery theory: the standard classification method for high-dimensional manifolds. It is aimed at graduate students who have already had 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 and topology, including basic homotopy and homology, Poincare duality, bundles, cobordism, embeddings, immersions, Whitehead torsion, Poincare complexes, spherical fibrations and quadratic forms and formations. 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.

Surveys on Surgery Theory, Paperback (January 2001)
Surgery theory is the basis for the classification theory of manifolds. This title reflects on the accomplishments of surgery theory as well as its varied interactions with algebra, analysis, and geometry.
