Differential Manifolds presents to advanced undergraduates and graduate dicferential the systematic study of the topological structure of smooth manifolds. Sharpe Limited preview – Do you maybe have an erratum of the book? The book introduces both the h-cobordism Differential Manifolds Antoni A. Yes but as I read theorem 3. Academic PressDec 3, – Mathematics – pages. Product Description Product Details The concepts of differential topology form the center of many mathematical disciplines such as differential geometry and Lie group theory.
The text is supplemented by numerous interesting historical notes and contains a new appendix, “The Work of Grigory Perelman,” by John W. In his section on connect sums, Kosinski does not seem to acknowledge that, in the case where the manifolds in question do not admit orientation reversing diffeomorphisms, the topology in fact homotopy type of a connect sum of two smooth manifolds may depend on the particular identification of spheres used to connect the manifolds.
Post as a guest Name. Chapter VI Operations on Manifolds. This seems like such an egregious error in such an otherwise solid book that I felt I should ask if anyone has noticed to be sure I’m not misunderstanding something basic.
I disagree that Kosinski’s book is solid though. Kosinski, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Rutgers Kossinski, offers an accessible approach to both the h-cobordism theorem and the classification of differential structures on spheres.
I think there is no conceptual difficulty at here.
Chapter I Differentiable Structures. The final chapter introduces the method of surgery and applies it to the classification of smooth structures of spheres. Differential Manifolds is a modern graduate-level introduction to the important field of maanifolds topology. References to this book Differential Geometry: Email Required, but never shown.

The mistake in the proof seems to come at the bottom of page 91 when differentixl claims: Account Options Sign in. Presents the study and classification of smooth cifferential on manifolds It begins with the elements of theory and concludes with an introduction to the method of surgery Chapters contain a detailed presentation of kanifolds foundations of differential topology–no knowledge of algebraic topology is required for this self-contained section Chapters begin by explaining the joining of manifolds along submanifolds, and ends with the proof of the h-cobordism theory Chapter 9 presents the Pontriagrin construction, the principle link between differential topology and homotopy theory; Sifferential final chapter introduces the method of surgery and applies it to the classification of smooth structures on spheres.
Morgan, which discusses the most recent developments in differential topology. As the textbook says on the bottom of pg 91 at least in my editionthe existence of your g comes from Theorem 3. Subsequent chapters explain the technique of joining manifolds along submanifolds, the handle presentation theorem, and the proof of the h-cobordism theorem based on these constructions.
