Description:
This book is devoted entirely to high-dimensional knot theory. It actually has two aims: (1) to serve as an introduction to high-dimensional knot theory, using surgery theory to provide a systematic exposition, (2) to serve as an introduction to algebraic surgery theory, using high-dimensional knots as the geometric motivation.

This is an introductory article on high dimensional knots for the beginners. Is there a nontrivial high dimensional knot? We first answer this question. We explain local moves on high dimensional knots and the projections of high dimensional knots.

Book cover: Algebraic and Geometric SurgeryAlgebraic and Geometric Surgery
by - Oxford University Press
Surgery theory is the standard method for the classification of high-dimensional manifolds, where high means 5 or more. This book aims to be an entry point to surgery theory for a reader who already has some background in topology.
