Part of the Bolyai Society Mathematical Studies book series (BSMS, volume 13)


After these preparatory chapters now we are ready to describe the surgery scheme in the symplectic category. First we will deal with the general cutand-paste operation and then examine the handle attachment procedure in detail. The chapter concludes with the description of a version of surgery which will be useful in the contact setting, see Chapter 11.
