Parametrized surgery and isotopy

Wu-Chung Hsiang and Richard W. Sharpe

Vol. 67 (1976), No. 2, 401–459
Abstract

The pseudo-isotopy techniques of Cerf-Hatcher-Wagoner are combined with surgery theory to give information about the group of isotopy classes of diffeomorphisms of a smooth manifold. For example, for the n-torus, n 6, this group is determined completely. We also provide a geometric interpretation of the periodicity sequence of [11].
