This Category contains pages about surgery theory and the surgery classification of manifolds: it is the "home page" of the "surgery project".
Andrew Ranicki is the organiser of the "surgery project".
Please email Andrew if you wish to contribute to one of the projected articles, or if you have a suggestion for an article on a particular topic, or with any other suggestion of matter to be included.
