Description:
This is a course on surfaces. However we are also going to try and consider surfaces intrinsically, or abstractly, and not necessarily embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space.

Book cover: Diffeomorphisms of Elliptic 3-ManifoldsDiffeomorphisms of Elliptic 3-Manifolds
by - arXiv
The elliptic 3-manifolds are the closed 3-manifolds that admit a Riemannian metric of constant positive curvature. For any elliptic 3-manifold M, the inclusion from the isometry group of M to the diffeomorphism group of M is a homotopy equivalence.

Book cover: Surgery on Compact ManifoldsSurgery on Compact Manifolds
by - American Mathematical Society
This book represents an attempt to collect and systematize the methods and main applications of the method of surgery, insofar as compact (but not necessarily connected, simply connected or closed) manifolds are involved.

by - Springer
The Hauptvermutung is the conjecture that any two triangulations of a polyhedron are combinatorially equivalent. This conjecture was formulated at the turn of the century, and until its resolution was a central problem of topology.

Book cover: CDBooK: Introduction to Vassiliev Knot invariantsCDBooK: Introduction to Vassiliev Knot invariants
by - Ohio State Universit
An introduction to the theory of finite type (Vassiliev) knot invariants, with a stress on its combinatorial aspects. Written for readers with no background in this area, and we care more about the basic notions than about more advanced material.
