Aspherical manifolds--those whose common covers are contractible--arise classically in lots of components of arithmetic. They take place in Lie staff concept as definite double coset areas and in artificial geometry because the area varieties protecting the geometry. This quantity includes lectures brought by means of the 1st writer at an NSF-CBMS nearby convention on K-Theory and Dynamics, held in Gainesville, Florida in January, 1989. The lectures have been essentially considering the matter of topologically characterizing classical aspherical manifolds. This challenge has for the main half been solved, however the three- and four-dimensional circumstances stay crucial open questions; Poincare's conjecture is heavily concerning the three-d challenge. one of many major effects is closed aspherical manifold (of size $\neq$ three or four) is a hyperbolic house if and provided that its primary staff is isomorphic to a discrete, cocompact subgroup of the Lie team $O(n,1;{\mathbb R})$. one of many book's subject matters is how the dynamics of the geodesic movement may be mixed with topological keep watch over conception to review competently discontinuous team activities on $R^n$. the various extra technical issues of the lectures were deleted, and a few extra effects received because the convention are mentioned in an epilogue. The e-book calls for a few familiarity with the cloth contained in a simple, graduate-level path in algebraic and differential topology, in addition to a few straightforward differential geometry.
