This thesis consists of four papers, entitled (i) Homotopy links, (ii) A Note on Piecewise-linear Immersions, (iii) Open and Closed Disc Bundles, (iv) The Space of Homeomorphisms of a 2-manifold. In (i), we define homotopy links and caloulate them in the metastable range. In (ii), we prove the Haefliger-Poenaru immersion theorem, using block bundles. In (iii), we prove that 02 = PL2(I) = PL2• In (iv), we prove that the space of PL homeomorphisms of a 2-manifold, fixed on the boundary and an interior point, has contractible identity component unless the manifold is S2 or P2.
