Description:
The purpose of this paper is to give an introduction to virtual knot theory and to record a collection of research problems that the authors have found fascinating. The second section of the paper introduces the theory and discusses some problems in that context.

These pages are really just an early draft of the initial chapters of a real book on 3-manifolds. The text does contain a few things that aren't readily available elsewhere, like the Jaco-Shalen/Johannson torus decomposition theorem.

Book cover: Geometry of SurfacesGeometry of Surfaces
by
Geometry of Surfaces by Nigel Hitchin is a textbook on surfaces. However the author is also going to try and consider surfaces intrinsically, or abstractly, and not necessarily embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space.

Book cover: Foliations and the Geometry of 3-manifoldsFoliations and the Geometry of 3-manifolds
by - Oxford University Press
The book gives an exposition of the 'pseudo-Anosov' theory of foliations of 3-manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms, and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions.
