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...

**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.

by

**A.A. Ranicki, et al,**-

**Springer**

The Hauptvermutung is the conjecture that any two triangulations of a polyhedron are combinatorially equivalent. This conjecture was formulated at the turn of the century, and until its resolution was a central problem of topology.
