Diffeomorphisms of Elliptic 3-Manifolds

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 185

Description:
The elliptic 3-manifolds are the closed 3-manifolds that admit a Riemannian metric of constant positive curvature, that is, those that have finite fundamental group. The (Generalized) Smale Conjecture asserts that for any elliptic 3-manifold M, the inclusion from the isometry group of M to the diffeomorphism group of M is a homotopy equivalence.

The theme of this book is infinite loop space theory and its multiplicative elaboration. The main goal is a complete analysis of the relationship between the classifying spaces of geometric topology and the infinite loop spaces of algebraic K-theory.

The book gives an exposition of the 'pseudo-Anosov' theory of foliations of 3-manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms, and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions.

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.
