By Steven C. Ferry,Andrew Ranicki,Jonathan M. Rosenberg

The Novikov Conjecture is the only most crucial unsolved challenge within the topology of high-dimensional non-simply hooked up manifolds. those volumes are the outgrowth of a convention held on the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (Germany) in September, 1993, almost about `Novikov Conjectures, Index Theorems and Rigidity'. they're meant to offer a photograph of the prestige of labor at the Novikov Conjecture and comparable subject matters from many issues of view: geometric topology, homotopy concept, algebra, geometry, analysis.
