Bokut’, L. A. (ed.) et al., Third Siberian school on algebra and analysis. Proceedings of the third Siberian school, Irkutsk State University, Irkutsk, Russia, August 30-September 4, 1989. Providence, RI: American Mathematical Society. Transl., Ser. 2, Am. Math. Soc. 163, 135-141 (1995).
The object of this paper is to generalize theorems concerning $$h$$-cobordism and diffeomorphicity by S. P. Novikov [Sov. Math., Dokl. 3, 540-543 (1962); translation from Dokl. Akad. Nauk SSSR 143, 1046-1049 (1962; Zbl 0142.40804); Izv. Akad. Nauk SSSR, Ser. Mat. 28, 365-474 (1964; Zbl 0151.32103)] and M. Freedman [Pac. J. Math. 62, 379-387 (1976; Zbl 0357.57004)].
