By C. T. C. Wall

Exploring the total scope of differential topology, this entire account of geometric ideas for learning the topology of delicate manifolds deals a large standpoint at the box. increase from first ideas, techniques of manifolds are brought, supplemented via thorough appendices giving history on topology and homotopy conception. Deep effects are then built from those foundations via in-depth remedies of the notions of normal place and transversality, right activities of Lie teams, handles (up to the h-cobordism theorem), immersions and embeddings, concluding with the surgical procedure technique and cobordism thought. totally illustrated and rigorous in its strategy, little previous wisdom is believed, and but turning out to be complexity is instilled all through. This constitution supplies complex scholars and researchers an obtainable direction into the wide-ranging box of differential topology.
