We construct knot invariants categorifying the quantum knot variants for all representations of quantum groups. We show that these invariants coincide with previous invariants defined by Khovanov for sl_2 and sl_3 and by Mazorchuk-Stroppel...

This book is an introduction to high-dimensional knot theory. It uses surgery theory to provide a systematic exposition, and it serves as an introduction to algebraic surgery theory, using high-dimensional knots as the geometric motivation.

This is the first treatment of the applications of the lower K- and L-groups to the topology of manifolds such as Euclidean spaces, via Whitehead torsion and the Wall finiteness and surgery obstructions. Only elementary constructions are used.

The book gives an exposition of the 'pseudo-Anosov' theory of foliations of 3-manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms, and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions.
