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.

We construct knot invariants categorifying the quantum knot variants for all representations of quantum groups. We show that these invariants coincide with previous invariants defined by Khovanov for sl_2 and sl_3 and by Mazorchuk-Stroppel...

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.

This is an introductory article on high dimensional knots for the beginners. Is there a nontrivial high dimensional knot? We first answer this question. We explain local moves on high dimensional knots and the projections of high dimensional knots.

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.
