Ends of Complexes
by Bruce Hughes, Andrew Ranicki
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2008
Number of pages: 375
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 certain topics in topology such as mapping tori and telescopes, often omitted from textbooks. It is thus simultaneously a research monograph and a useful reference.

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.

Geometry of Surfaces by Nigel Hitchin is a textbook on surfaces. However the author is also going to try and consider surfaces intrinsically, or abstractly, and not necessarily embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space.

Our goal in this book is to explain as many important theorems, examples, and techniques as possible, as quickly and directly as possible, while at the same time giving (nearly) full details and keeping the text (nearly) selfcontained.
