## Description

Since the 1950s, many new ideas and tools from algebra, and algebraic and geometric topology, have been applied to study the structure of high-dimensional differential and topological manifolds, and so today it can be difficult for beginners to delve through the literature. This volume is a helpful guide to the basic concepts and results of topology of manifolds—including the *h*- and *s*-cobordism theorems, topological invariance of rational Pontryagin classes, surgery theory, and algebraic *K*-theory.

## This volume is part of the Surveys of Modern Mathematics book series.
