The Geometry and Topology of Three-Manifolds

Small book cover: The Geometry and Topology of Three-Manifolds

The Geometry and Topology of Three-Manifolds

Publisher: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute
Number of pages: 502

The author's intent is to describe the very strong connection between geometry and lowdimensional topology in a way which will be useful and accessible (with some effort) to graduate students and mathematicians working in related fields, particularly 3-manifolds and Kleinian groups.

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.

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.

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.

The purpose of this paper is to give an introduction to virtual knot theory and to record a collection of research problems that the authors have found fascinating. The paper introduces the theory and discusses some problems in that context.
