About the Authors
  • The Novikov Conjecture is the single most important unsolved problem in the topology of high-dimensional non-simply connected manifolds. These two volumes are the outgrowth of a conference held at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (Germany) in September, 1993, on the subject of `Novikov Conjectures, Index Theorems and Rigidity'. They are intended to give a snapshot of the status of work on the Novikov Conjecture and related topics from many points of view: geometric topology, homotopy theory, algebra, geometry, analysis.

    • Novikov's original paper (plus a translation) is reproduced
    • Up-to-date surveys included
    • Could be used as a supplementary reference for graduate topics course on topology and geometry of manifolds
