# High-dimensional knot theory. Algebraic surgery in by Andrew Ranicki, E. Winkelnkemper

By Andrew Ranicki, E. Winkelnkemper

High-dimensional knot thought is the learn of the embeddings of n-dimensional manifolds in (n+2)-dimensional manifolds, generalizing the conventional examine of knots within the case n=1. the most topic is the applying of the author's algebraic concept of surgical procedure to supply a unified remedy of the invariants of codimension 2 embeddings, generalizing the Alexander polynomials and Seifert kinds of classical knot conception. Many ends up in the study literature are hence introduced right into a unmarried framework, and new effects are received. The therapy is especially powerful in facing open books, that are manifolds with codimension 2 submanifolds such that the supplement fibres over a circle. The publication concludes with an appendix by way of E. Winkelnkemper at the background of open books.

Kn (A[z]) −−→ Kn (A[z, z −1 ]) −−→ Kn (A[z], Z) −−→ Kn−1 (A[z]) −−→ . . are the algebraic K-groups K∗ (A[z], Z) = K∗−1 (H (A[z], Z)) of the exact category H (A[z], Z) of (A[z], Z)-modules. Use the isomorphism of exact categories Nil(A) −−→ H (A[z], Z) ; (P, ν) −−→ coker(z − ν : P [z]−−→P [z]) to identify K∗ (A[z], Z) = K∗−1 (H (A[z], Z)) = Nil∗−1 (A) = K∗−1 (A) ⊕ Nil∗−1 (A) . (ii) The localization exact sequence breaks up into split exact sequences i+ ∂+ 0 −−→ Kn (A[z]) −−→ Kn (A[z, z −1 ]) −−→ Niln−1 (A) −−→ 0 , so that Kn (A[z, z −1 ]) = Kn (A[z]) ⊕ Niln−1 (A) (n ∈ Z) .

G. free Amodule chain complex D with chain maps f : C−−→D, g : D−−→C and a chain homotopy gf 1 : C−−→C.

The reduced projective class [C] ∈ K0 (A) of a finitely dominated A-module chain complex is such that [C] = 0 if and only if C is chain homotopy finite.

With relative K-groups K∗ (f ). g. projective A-modules P, Q and a B-module isomorphism g : f!

In the special case when f : A−−→B = S −1 A is the inclusion of A in the localization inverting a multiplicative subset S ⊂ A the relative K-groups K∗ (f ) are identified with the K-groups of the exact category of homological dimension 1 S-torsion A-modules.
