This paper is an exposition of the new subject of String Topology. We present an introduction to this exciting new area, as well as a survey of some of the latest developments, and our views about future directions of research.

This paper is a survey of knot theory and invariants of knots and links from the point of view of categories of diagrams. The topics range from foundations of knot theory to virtual knot theory and topological quantum field theory.

Our goal in this book is to explain as many important theorems, examples, and techniques as possible, as quickly and directly as possible, while at the same time giving (nearly) full details and keeping the text (nearly) selfcontained.

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.
