note = {We revisit the algebraic surgery theory and especially the proof of the total surgery obstruction.
The total surgery obstruction was defined by Ranicki for a finite n-dimensional Poincaré complex X as an element in a certain abelian group with the property that for n≥5 it vanishes if and only if X is homotopy equivalent to a closed n-dimensional manifold.
This thesis adds details that were missing in the original sources and provides a self-contained proof.
In order to make the proof and the underlying algebraic surgery theory more easily accessible, the proof is presented in various levels with each level supplying more elaborate details.},
