Algebraic and Geometric Surgery

Andrew Ranicki

Oxford University Press

Poincaré duality is an isomorphism between the homology and cohomology of a manifold. The chapter introduces the basic duality and the universal Poincaré duality for non-simply-connected manifolds using the involution on the fundamental group ring. Poincaré duality governs the homological effect of a surgery. The example of surgery on surfaces is given.

Keywords:   effect of surgery, surface, ring with involution, universal Poincaré duality
