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.
