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

by

**Danny Calegari**-

**Oxford University Press**

The book gives 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.

**Diffeomorphisms of Elliptic 3-Manifolds**

by

**S. Hong, J. Kalliongis, D. McCullough, J. H. Rubinstein**-

**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.
