**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.
