Existence and Uniqueness of Manifolds via Surgery Hambleton, Ian


We will discuss some examples of the use of surgery theory in studying (i) the existence of finite group actions on “standard” high-dimensional manifolds such as spheres or products of spheres, (ii) the existence of discrete co-compact infinite group actions on $S^n \times R^k$, and (iii) the classification of topological 4-manifolds with a given fundamental group.
