An introduction to the most frequently used techniques in modern global geometry. Suited to the beginning graduate student, the necessary prerequisite is a good knowledge of several variables calculus, linear algebra and point-set topology.

This book is an introduction to high-dimensional knot theory. It uses surgery theory to provide a systematic exposition, and it serves as an introduction to algebraic surgery theory, using high-dimensional knots as the geometric motivation.

This book represents an attempt to collect and systematize the methods and main applications of the method of surgery, insofar as compact (but not necessarily connected, simply connected or closed) manifolds are involved.

These notes contain: The elementary theory of finite polyhedra in real vector spaces; A theory of 'general position' (approximation of maps), based on 'non-degeneracy'. A theory of 'regular neighbourhoods' in arbitrary polyhedra; etc.
