The book gathers together the main strands of the theory of ends of manifolds from the last thirty years and presents a unified and coherent treatment of them. It also contains authoritative expositions of mapping tori and telescopes.

This paper is a survey of knot theory and invariants of knots and links from the point of view of categories of diagrams. The topics range from foundations of knot theory to virtual knot theory and topological quantum field theory.

The book present original research on a wide range of topics in modern topology: the algebraic K-theory of spaces, the algebraic obstructions to surgery and finiteness, geometric and chain complexes, characteristic classes, and transformation groups.
by Dennis Sullivan - Springer
In 1970, Sullivan circulated this set of notes introducing localization and completion of topological spaces to homotopy theory, and other important concepts. The notes remain worth reading for the fresh picture they provide for geometric topology.
