Browder-Novikov-Sullivan-Wall surgery theory investigates the homotopy types of manifolds, using a combination of algebra and topology. It is the aim of these notes to provide an introduction to the more algebraic aspects of the theory.

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.

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.

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.
