    • Applications of the h-Cobordism Theorem 

      Burkemper, Matthew Bryan (Wichita State University, 2014-05)
      We provide an exposition of J. Milnor's proof of the h-Cobordism Theorem. This theorem states that a smooth, compact, simply connected n-dimensional manifold W with n greater than or equal to 6, whose boundary boundaryW ...
    • Positive (p, n)-intermediate scalar curvature and Gromov-Lawson cobordism 

      Burkemper, Matthew Bryan (Wichita State University, 2021-08)
      In this thesis we consider a well known construction due to Gromov, Lawson, and Gajer which allows for the extension of a metric of positive scalar curvature over the trace of a surgery in codimension at least 3 to a ...
