Description:
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.

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...

Homology manifolds were developed in the 20th century to give a precise setting for Poincare's ideas on duality. They are investigated using algebraic and geometric methods. This volume is the proceedings of a workshop held in 2003.

The goal of the book is to characterize algebraically the closed 4-manifolds that fibre nontrivially or admit geometries in the sense of Thurston, or which are obtained by surgery on 2-knots, and to provide a reference for the topology of such knots.
