The Novikov Conjecture: Geometry and Algebra: 33 by Matthias Kreck,Wolfgang Lück

By Matthias Kreck,Wolfgang Lück

These lecture notes include a guided travel to the Novikov Conjecture and comparable conjectures as a result of Baum-Connes, Borel and Farrell-Jones. they start with fundamentals approximately better signatures, Whitehead torsion and the s-Cobordism Theorem. Then an creation to surgical procedure conception and a model of the meeting map is gifted. utilizing the answer of the Novikov conjecture for distinct teams a few functions to the type of low dimensional manifolds are given.
