The earlier twenty years have introduced explosive development in 4-manifold thought. Many books are presently showing that technique the subject from viewpoints corresponding to gauge concept or algebraic geometry. This quantity, in spite of the fact that, deals an exposition from a topological standpoint. It bridges the space to different disciplines and offers classical yet very important topological innovations that experience no longer formerly seemed within the literature. half I of the textual content provides the fundamentals of the idea on the second-year graduate point and gives an summary of present study. half II is dedicated to an exposition of Kirby calculus, or handlebody conception on 4-manifolds. it's either hassle-free and accomplished. half III bargains extensive a large diversity of themes from present 4-manifold examine. issues comprise branched coverings and the geography of advanced surfaces, elliptic and Lefschetz fibrations, $h$-cobordisms, symplectic 4-manifolds, and Stein surfaces. functions are featured, and there are over three hundred illustrations and various routines with ideas within the publication.
