0, where G is any Abelian group (viewed as a Z-module).

Unless their names are followed by the word "open", it should be understood that they are in fact proved theorems, but have gained notoriety while being unsolved questions. It is also worth noticing the double use of the words topology I topological. On one hand, they will be used to refer to the realm of topological manifolds, as opposed to that of smooth manifolds. On the other hand, they will be used to emphasize a topological point-of-view (as in "differential topology'' or "the smooth topology of M"), as opposed to, say, a differentialgeometric or algebraic-geometric one.

A 0-handle is a copy of JD 0 x JD"'+ 1 , where JD 0 ={point}; hence a 0-handle is an (m + 1)-ballJDm+ 1 • It is "attached" through s- 1 X JDm+l, where s- 1 should be understood as the empty set. In other words, attaching a 0handle simply means setting an (m + 1) -ball alongside the rest of our creature; this creates an m-sphere in the resulting upper boundary.
