Surgery theory is the basic tool for the investigation of differential and topological manifolds. A systematic development of the theory is a long and difficult task. The purpose of these notes is to describe simple examples and at the same time to give an introduction to some of the systematic parts of the theory.

In mathematics, specifically in geometric topology, surgery theory is a collection of techniques used to produce one finite-dimensional manifold from another in a 'controlled' way, introduced by John Milnor ().Originally developed for differentiable (or, smooth) manifolds, surgery techniques also apply to piecewise linear (PL-) and topological manifolds.

Disclaimer: I am no expert in surgery theory, but I have been studying it for many years and finally got to the point of using it for Riemannian geometry purposes.

Surgery and Geometric Topology. This book covers the following topics: Cohomology and Euler Characteristics Of Coxeter Groups, Completions Of Stratified Ends, The Braid Structure Of Mapping Class Groups, Controlled Topological Equivalence Of Maps in The Theory Of Stratified Spaces and Approximate Fibrations, The Asymptotic Method In The Novikov Conjecture, N Exponentially Nash G.

Idea. Geometric representation theory studies representations (of various symmetry objects like algebraic groups, Hecke algebras, quantum groups, quivers etc.) realizing them by geometric means, e.g. by geometrically defined actions on sections of various bundles or sheaves as in geometric quantization (see at orbit method), D-modules, perverse sheaves, deformation quantization modules and so on.

Geometric group theory is an area in mathematics devoted to the study of finitely generated groups via exploring the connections between algebraic properties of such groups and topological and geometric properties of spaces on which these groups act (that is, when the groups in question are realized as geometric symmetries or continuous transformations of some spaces).
