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.

Browder-Novikov-Sullivan-Wall surgery theory investigates the homotopy types of manifolds, using a combination of algebra and topology. It is the aim of these notes to provide an introduction to the more algebraic aspects of the theory.

These notes contain: The elementary theory of finite polyhedra in real vector spaces; A theory of 'general position' (approximation of maps), based on 'non-degeneracy'. A theory of 'regular neighbourhoods' in arbitrary polyhedra; etc.

Homology manifolds were developed in the 20th century to give a precise setting for Poincare's ideas on duality. They are investigated using algebraic and geometric methods. This volume is the proceedings of a workshop held in 2003.

The theme of this book is infinite loop space theory and its multiplicative elaboration. The main goal is a complete analysis of the relationship between the classifying spaces of geometric topology and the infinite loop spaces of algebraic K-theory.
