Acknowledging a debt to the earlier work of C.T.C. Wall, Johnson (University College London, UK) lays out a focused study of the D(2)-problem and the realization problem in a text that will be useful to graduate students interested in low-dimensional homotopy theory as well as specialists. The initial chapters summarize the module theory and group representation theory to be used. Subsequent chapters describe group cohomology and module extension theory, Yoneda theory, detailed classification theory by k-invariants, structure and classification of groups of periodic cohomology, and finally, algebraic and two-dimensional geometric homotopy theory in relation to the realization and D(2) problems.

Cambridge Univ Pr
Concerned with two fundamental problems in low-dimensional topology, the D(2)-problem and the realization problem, F.E.A. Johnson develops general methods and provides complete solutions in some instances. His book is suitable for graduate students wanting to learn low-dimensional homotopy theory as well as established researchers in the field.
Deals with two fundamental problems in low-dimensional topology with an eye on wider context.
