**High-dimensional Knot Theory**

by Andrew Ranicki

**Publisher**: Springer 1998**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540633898**ISBN-13**: 9783540633891**Number of pages**: 693

**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.

The elliptic 3-manifolds are the closed 3-manifolds that admit a Riemannian metric of constant positive curvature. For any elliptic 3-manifold M, the inclusion from the isometry group of M to the diffeomorphism group of M is a homotopy equivalence.
