Noncommutative Localization in Algebra and Topology by Andrew Ranicki

Book Description

Noncommutative localization is a powerful algebraic technique for constructing new rings by inverting elements, matrices and more generally morphisms of modules. Originally conceived by algebraists (notably P. M. Cohn), it is now an important tool not only in pure algebra but also in the topology of non-simply-connected spaces, algebraic geometry and noncommutative geometry. This volume consists of 9 articles on noncommutative localization in algebra and topology by J. A. Beachy, P. M. Cohn, W. G. Dwyer, P. A. Linnell, A. Neeman, A. A. Ranicki, H. Reich, D. Sheiham and Z. Skoda. The articles include basic definitions, surveys, historical background and applications, as well as presenting new results. The book is an introduction to the subject, an account of the state of the art, and also provides many references for further material. It is suitable for graduate students and more advanced researchers in both algebra and topology.

Ends of Complexes by Andrew Ranicki Ends of Complexes, Paperback (January 2008)

A systematic exposition of the theory and practice of ends of manifolds and CW complexes, not previously available.

Algebraic and Geometric Surgery by Andrew Ranicki Algebraic and Geometric Surgery, Hardback (September 2002)

This book provides an introduction to surgery theory; the standard classification method for high dimension manifolds.

Surveys on Surgery Theory by Andrew Ranicki 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.
