**Foliations and the Geometry of 3-manifolds**

by Danny Calegari

**Publisher**: Oxford University Press 2007**ISBN/ASIN**: 0198570082**ISBN-13**: 9780198570080**Number of pages**: 371

**Description**:

The purpose of this book is to give 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.
