The Novikov conjecture geometry and algebra by Matthias Kreck ( )
19 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These lecture notes contain a guided tour to the Novikov Conjecture and related conjectures due to Baum-Connes, Borel and Farrell-Jones. They begin with basics about higher signatures, Whitehead torsion and the s-Cobordism Theorem. Then an introduction to surgery theory and a version of the assembly map is presented. Using the solution of the Novikov conjecture for special groups some applications to the classification of low dimensional manifolds are given

Differential algebraic topology : from stratifolds to exotic spheres by Matthias Kreck ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book presents a geometric introduction to the homology of topological spaces and the cohomology of smooth manifolds. The author introduces a new class of stratified spaces, so-called stratifolds. He derives basic concepts from differential topology such as Sard's theorem, partitions of unity and transversality. Based on this, homology groups are constructed in the framework of stratifolds and the homology axioms are proved. This implies that for nice spaces these homology groups agree with ordinary singular homology. Besides the standard computations of homology groups using the axioms, straightforward constructions of important homology classes are given. The author also defines stratifold cohomology groups following an idea of Quillen. Again, certain important cohomology classes occur very naturally in this description, for example, the characteristic classes which are constructed in the book and applied later on. One of the most fundamental results, Poincaré duality, is almost a triviality in this approach. Some fundamental invariants, such as the Euler characteristic and the signature, are derived from (co)homology groups. These invariants play a significant role in some of the most spectacular results in differential topology. In particular, the author proves a special case of Hirzebruch's signature theorem and presents as a highlight Milnor's exotic 7-spheres."--Publisher's description

Seine Welt ist die Logik - Martin Beck ist Professor für Mathematik. Dann aber vermietet er seine Mainzer Wohnung an Jörg Kaiser und nichts ist mehr logisch. Dabei war ihm Kaiser zunächst sehr sympathisch: weil er intelligent ist und so schöne altmodische Redewendungen gebraucht. Dann aber zahlt Kaiser monatelang keine Miete. Und auch keinen Strom - er zahlt überhaupt nichts. Die rechtlichen Mittel sind schnell ausgeschöpft und der Mieter ist immer noch in der Beckschen Wohnung. Wie Professor Dr. Martin Beck (d.i. der Autor, Professor Dr. Matthias Kreck) es schafft, seinen Mietnomaden mit Beharrlichkeit, Witz und - jawoll! - Logik aus seiner Wohnung zu bekommen. Wobei er auch vor unkonventionellen Methoden nicht zurückschreckt ... Matthias Kreck, geb. 1947, ist Mathematiker. Nach der Promotion studierte er evangelische Theologie, kehrte aber danach wieder in die Mathematik zurück. Er hat eine Professur an der Universität Bonn und lebt in Mainz und Bonn. In seiner Freizeit spielt er Cello
