This book concerns the study of singular spaces using techniques of geometry and topology and interactions among them. The authors cover intersection homology, L2 cohomology and differential operators, the topology of algebraic varieties, etc.

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.
