By Levine M., Morel F.

Following Quillen's method of advanced cobordism, the authors introduce the thought of orientated cohomology idea at the classification of delicate types over a hard and fast box. They end up the life of a common such concept (in attribute zero) known as Algebraic Cobordism. unusually, this idea satisfies the analogues of Quillen's theorems: the cobordism of the bottom box is the Lazard ring and the cobordism of a gentle type is generated over the Lazard ring by means of the weather of optimistic levels. this means particularly the generalized measure formulation conjectured via Rost. The booklet additionally comprises a few examples of computations and purposes.
