Bonn Summer School on Topology of High Dimensional Manifolds

Wolfgang Luck,  Diarmuid Crowley and Tibor Macko are organizing a summer school in Bonn on The Topology of High-Dimensional Manifolds.  It takes place August 26-30.

Below I reproduce some of the prerequisite and reference material from the event’s web site. Whether or not you choose to attend, this is a useful list of references!

Participants should be familiar with the concepts and ideas covered in the first 7 chapters of the book [Ranicki2002] and the first six chapters of the book [Husemoller1994]. In addition participants should be familiar with the basics of spectra in stable homotopy theory. A good reference here is [Hatcher2002, Section 4.F].

The main references for the material covered in the seminar are [Lück2001], [Crowley2010], [Kühl&Macko&Mole2011], [Lück&Reich2005], [Bartels&Lück&Reich2008], [Bartels&Lück2012].

There is also a reading guide for surgery theory for topological manifolds available at the discussion page of the TSO-at-MFO 2012
