Complex cobordism and stable homotopy groups of spheres

1986/2003

on stable homotopy theory in general and in particular the computation of the homotopy groups of spheres via the Adams-Novikov spectral sequence and its use of complex cobordism cohomology theory.

My initial inclination was to call this book The Music of the Spheres, but I was dissuaded from doing so by my diligent publisher, who is ever mindful of the sensibilities of librarians. (preface to the first edition)
