**Description**:

The goal of this book is to introduce the reader to some of the most frequently used techniques in modern global geometry. Suited to the beginning graduate student willing to specialize in this very challenging field, the necessary prerequisite is a good knowledge of several variables calculus, linear algebra and point-set topology.

**Notes on Basic 3-Manifold Topology**

by

**Allen Hatcher**

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.
